Q - question

How to make an existing block uniform-scaled or explodable?

A - answer You have a finished block with the option "Uniform scale" or with a disabled option "Allow exploding" and now you want to change these options in the block definition, without redefining the block again.

In the context menu of the block reference (or separately with the BEDIT command) run the block editor. In this editor, open the Properties window (Ctrl+1). In the lower part of this window (palette) locate the Block panel and the options "Scale uniformly" and "Allow exploding". You can switch these options to Yes and No. Remember to save changes when you exit the block editor.
