How to explode a MINSERTed block?

A - answer AutoCAD blocks inserted with MINSERT cannot be exploded directly.

But you can use a combination (sequence) of the FLATTEN and EXPLODE commands to explode a "multiple-insert" block reference (Flatten is a Express Tools command).

To explode a combination of anonymous and MInserted blocks (e.g. from LockDWG or Deter) you can use the ExplodeM utility - see Download.
