Have you tried with the properties window? I've had to do this with
several drawings from outside our office. Also, if you get one
corrected, you can use match properties (or whatever they call it) to
update the rest.
I don't think inserting to a new drawing will help you.
cause my job is to use it as a reference tool (for conceptual purposes only)
& to field measure all components & compare, modify as needed & build/
rebuild necessary piping & duct work. the dwg is a clusterfuck of useless
lines that are part of different blocks & xrefs. I hate working in
Architectural dimensions, but need to for some of the dimensions since this
area is about 100 foot square. so I will turn on Alt units as Arch. crank
the dimscale up to about 40 & fight through it.
in the near future this plant will shut down & my job will switch from
"draftsman" to project manager & I will be working as a foreman on sight.
for every hour of downtime past the allotted shutdown time, my company can
be fined for production loss. some of these systems generate $10's of
thousands per hour.
