My Autocad block will not map after I enable block indexing for that named block in ADMS.
We have encountered drawings where an old (R14 and older) DWG with attributed blocks are still in use, and have never been updated/redefined.
If you cannot map a block after you have set the ADMS block indexing, please do the below steps and try again.
- Insert the block to the dwg (even if it’s in a different area of the DWG already)
- Explode the block
- Redefine the block (do not make any changes, just select the insert point and select the block data)
- Save it as the same block name
- Save the DWG
- Check into Vault
- Attempt to map the Autocad attributed block to the user defined property
If you have newer dwgs with this same issue, please redefine the block in them as well.
You must update that block in each dwg it is used.
