Revising a block in AutoCAD 2000i

newbie level here....trying to modify a block.  the book says modify > in-place xref and block edit > edit reference.  no such option on the modify menu.  Can't seem to find the solution in the documentation either.

so i tried inserting the block, exploding it, making the required changes and saving it as the original block name.  prompted if i want to save the changes to the original block and i say yes.  then all my previously inserted blocks disappear rather than take on the modifications.  when i try to insert the modified block, everything on the cmd line looks fine but nothing inserts.

i'm running lt 2000i.  any help would be much appreciated.

you insert it but beacouse of faulty PICK POINT your block ends up somewhere in the screen.

you have to enter one point to be your pickpoint when maiking blocks. that way you can chose your insertion point.

Do you have 2000i LT rather than the full blown 2000i?

LT does not have this option

yes that seems to be the case.  you'd think this is a relatively benign "feature" that might be included across the versions.  but hey...who am i to assume the obvious.

thanks for the pointer.
