Q - question

WBLOCK both model and layouts at the same time.

A - answer If you need to WBLOCK your drawing (e.g. for purge purposes) with both modelspace and paperspace entities (objects) at the same time, perform the WBLOCK command with "*".

When WBLOCK prompts for the block name, just type * (asterisk, not just Enter). The command writes out a "block" consisting of all referenced entities from both model and paperspace.

Please note that the "All" option selects just the entities from the current space (model or paper).
