Saving Component Edits

The SaveComponent command saves changes made during a Component editing session and ends the session. In-place editing of Block definitions or References is invoked by the EditComponent command.

To save an in-place edited Block definition or Reference:

    The Block definition or Reference changes are saved and Component editing mode ends.

    All instances of the Block or Reference in the drawing reflect the changes.

  Use CloseComponent to save or discard the modifications of in-place editing of Components.


Command: SaveComponent

Menu: Modify > Component > Save and Close
