The command BATTMAN fails to sychronize changed attribute definitions of existing Block Inserts (ins

Hi all,

In the attachement you find a DWG to reproduce the faulty behaviour.

1. run the BATTMAN command
2. change the name of an attribute Tag (e.g. SPACENAME to SPACENAME2)
3. hit the button  "Apply"  to apply the changes to the Block Definition (applies the changes to the block definition e.g SPACEINFO)
4. hit the button  "Sync"  to propagate changes to existing block inserts and their attributes (applies the changes to all block instances in the drawing).

The existing values of this attribute (e.g. SPACENAME) in the existing blocks disappears instead of retaining the old value !
The correct behaviour of BATTMAN in AutoCAD is to retain the old attribute values of existing blocks inserts by changing the attribute definitions !

Am i missing something (...a variable) ?



  • I can confirm (using a drawing of my own) that the attributes are reset to their default value after they have been renamed and synchronized; I can't compare to the functionality to AutoCAD, but this does appear to be in error.  You should report this to the support team so that they can assign a ticket to it and look into it further.
  • Hi,
    I can confirm observed behaviour with your file. I am not sure, how changing attribute name and syncing behaves in AutoCAD.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
