Replace all occurances of a block in a drawing with the block you specify from a file.

Re-insert a Block from a File (Tip #2154) was supplied by power programmer Will DeLoach. If you have blocks in drawings that must be replaced with ones from disk, then you need this tip. Load the LISP code, then type RIB. First, select the block that you want to replace, and the program presents a file selection dialog box from which you select the replacement block. All occurrences of the block insert are replaced in the current drawing. This is another very well-written tip that's extremely useful when working with dynamic blocks.
