THE POWERFUL GATTE AND BATTMAN COMMANDS IN ACTCAD

GATTE:

Changes globally the attribute values for all instances of a selected block

With GATTE, you can specify a block by selecting it or by specifying its name, and you can specify an attribute by selecting it or by entering its tag name.

After specifying a new value for one of the attributes, it replaces all values with the same attribute tag name.

How to use Gatte Command in ActCAD:

BATTMAN:

Manages the attribute definitions for blocks in the current drawing

You can edit the attribute definitions in blocks, remove attributes from blocks, and change the order in which you are prompted for attribute values when inserting a block.

Attributes of the selected block are displayed in the attribute list. By default, Tag, Prompt, Default, Mode, and Annotative attribute properties are displayed in the attribute list. For each selected block, a description below the attribute list identifies the number of its instances in the current drawing and in the current layout.

You can specify which attribute properties you want displayed in the list by choosing Settings.

Double-click an attribute to display the Edit Attribute dialog box, where you can modify attribute properties.
