Quick Reference

Summary

If FILEDIA is set to 1, entering -wblock at the Command prompt displays a standard file selection dialog box in which to specify a name for the new drawing file. If FILEDIA is set to 0, entering -wblock at the Command prompt displays a prompt. The new drawing is saved in the file format that is specified in Save As on the Open and Save tab in the Options dialog box.

After the file is created, the selected objects are deleted from the drawing. You can use OOPS to restore the objects.

In the new drawing, the world coordinate system (WCS) is set parallel to the user coordinate system (UCS).
