Automatically replace block names.

Tipster Paul Hinds sent in two useful tips. Block Name Replacement (Tip #2089) and Modified Array Command (Tip #2090) are examples of how easy it is to customize AutoCAD to your needs. In #2089 you load the LSP file and type REPLACE at the Command line. Select the block inserts you want to change, type in the new block name to use (which you should have already defined in the drawing), and this routine takes care of the work. Harry noted that this tool is helpful when you need to update a lot of block occurrences in a drawing with a new library of figures.
