Lesson 4-5: Using And Setting Grips
By now you should be familiar with grips. These are the ‘blue squares` that get highlighted when you select an object outside of a command.

Happy New Year to one and all! This month I have a solution for those of you who have attributed blocks scattered all over a drawing… and you need to add another attribute to a block so that all the references of that block are updated with the additional attribute.
