Renaming Nested Attributes Without Exploding Blocks or Groups
Ever run into the situation where you insert a new block containing nested attributes block only to find that there are attributes blocks in the drawing with the same name as the ones in your block or group? The first thing you would notice is that your nested attribute blocks will take on the characteristics of the existing block with the same name but your attribute tags won't - so you end up with garbage.
If you first copy your block into a new temporary drawing and use the RENAME command in the FORMAT pulldown menu, you will get a dialog box that will give you a list of all the attribute blocks in your drawing and a way to rename them without having to explode anything.
