About Editing Referenced Drawings and Blocks With Nesting, OLE, or Attributes
If the reference you select for editing has attached xrefs or block definitions,
the reference and its nested references are displayed and available for selection
in the Reference Edit dialog box. Nested references are displayed only if the object
chosen for selection is part of a nested reference. Only one reference at a time can
be selected for editing. If you are editing a reference that contains OLE objects,
the OLE objects are displayed but cannot be selected for editing.
If a block reference with attributes is selected for editing, you can choose to display
the attribute definitions in the reference and make them available for editing. The
attributes are made invisible and the attribute definitions are available for editing
along with the selected reference geometry. When changes are saved back to the block
reference, the attributes of the original reference remain unchanged. The new or altered
attribute definitions only affect subsequent insertions of the block; the attributes
in existing block instances are not affected.
