About Specifying Properties for Dynamic Blocks

Control the way parameters are displayed using the Properties palette.

Custom Properties

In the Block Editor, you can specify properties for a parameter in a dynamic block
definition. Some of these properties can be displayed as custom properties for the dynamic block reference when it is in a drawing. These properties are displayed
under Custom in the Properties palette.

Other parameter properties, such as Value Set properties and Chain Actions, define
how the block reference will function in a drawing.

Assign Labels to Parameters

When you select the dynamic block reference in a drawing, parameter labels are assigned
to custom properties in the Properties palette. You can specify whether or not these
custom properties are displayed for the block reference when it is selected in a drawing.
These properties can also be extracted using the Attribute Extraction wizard.

It is good practice to specify unique parameter labels within the block.

Distance Multiplier Overrides

Use the distance multiplier property to change a parameter value by a specified factor.
For example, if you set the distance multiplier property to 2 for a stretch action,
the associated geometry in the block reference would increase and double the distance
of the grip movement.

Angle Offset Overrides

Use the angle offset property to increase or decrease the angle of a changed parameter
value by a specified amount. For example, if you set the angle offset property of
a move action to 90, the block reference would move 90 degrees beyond the angle value
of the grip movement.
