How to hide individual block attributes - 3 methods.

A - answer If you need to temporarily hide (make invisible) text attributes in blocks in an AutoCAD DWG drawing, you have 3 main options differing in the level of hiding:

  1. Hiding all attributes in all blocks:
    Switch off the system variable ATTDISP
  2. Hiding of a given block attribute in all its references:
    Using the block editor (BEDIT) change the property of the given attribute or attributes to Invisible=Yes (e.g. using the Properties palette, Ctrl+1), save the changes, eventually synchronize blocks (BATTMAN).
  3. Hiding of individual attributes in individual selected references:
    Use the freeware utility HideItem - this tool will temporarily change visibility of clicked attributes in individual block references, even in different blocks - see Tip 13452 and see an example:
