Q - question

How to change the "Scale uniformly" flag for all blocks?

A - answer If you need to change the uniform scaling (X/Y/Z) flag globally, for all blocks defined in the current drawing, you can use the free UniScale utility.

Download UniScale.lsp from, load it with APPLOAD and start the command UniScaleOn or UniScaleOff.

Forced uniform scaling may cause problems e.g. when exporting P&ID drawings to AutoCAD DWG.
