DraftSight 2019 – Block Attribute Manager

Many of the new, great features in DraftSight 2019 are only available in the ProfessionalPremiumEnterprise and Enterprise Plus versions of the software. The Block Attribute Manager is one of those great new features only to be found in  DraftSight 2019 Professional and above, and, as the name suggests, it allows users to manage the attributes of their blocks within a DraftSight drawing.

Starting the Block Attribute Manager is simplicity itself just enter BAM at the Command Window.

The Block Attribute Manager will instantly pop up. As you can see, the interface is quite simple and easy to use.

If you click on the Drop Down Menu, you can select any blocks in your drawing with editable attributes. Just click on one to select it.

From within the Block Attribute Manager, you can edit many different Text Settings such as Text Style, Justification, Height, Rotation, Width and so on.  You can also change Properties such as Layer, LineStyle, LineColor, LineWeight and PrintStyle! The Block Attribute Manager really is a one stop shop for editing Block Attributes within DraftSight 2019 ProfessionalPremiumEnterprise and Enterprise Plus!

The first time I used CAD, it was on a DOS PC with an 8088 processor, 640K of memory and a Hercules Mono Graphics Card... That, well that was a long long time ago. I switched to DraftSight the day it was released and haven't looked back!
