Q - question

Use BCount (Express Tools) with dynamic blocks.

A - answer One of the most useful commands in AutoCAD Express Tools is the BCOUNT command for counting the number of references (insertions) of each selected block.

Unfortunately this command does not support modified (touched) dynamic blocks by default. If you want to use it generally, for standard and dynamic blocks, replace the count.lsp file in your AutoCAD Express Tools folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2013\Express\) with our updated version of BCount downloadable from Download.
