Q - question

How to change the order of attribute prompts?

A - answer If you want to change the sequence of block attributes (the questions AutoCAD asks on block insertions) you have two basic options:
  1. Set the requested order of attributes in your block definition - when you define the block, select the attribute definitions (ATTDEFs) individually in order (not by window).
  2. In existing blocks, you can redefine the order of attributes with the BATTMAN command (an older Express Tool). Just use the Up/Down buttons to move the individual attributes.
In AutoCAD LT, you have to explode and redefine your block.
