Quick Reference

Breaks a compound object into its component objects.

Summary

Reports how many objects were selected and, of those, how many objects cannot be exploded.

List of Prompts

The following prompts are displayed.

Enter an option [Individually/Globally].

Individually

Applies changes to the selected objects one at a time. The following prompt is displayed for each object.

All

Sets the color, linetype, lineweight, and layer of the component objects after you explode them. The prompts associated with the Color, Linetype, Lineweight, and Layer options are displayed.

Color

Sets the color of the objects after you explode them.

  • Enter bylayer to inherit the color of the exploded object's layer.
  • Enter byblock to inherit the color of the exploded object.
  • Enter t for a true color to be used for the selected object.
  • Enter co for a color from a loaded color book to be used for the selected object.
Layer

Sets the layer of the component objects after you explode them. The default option is to inherit the current layer rather than the layer of the exploded object.

LType

Sets the linetype of the component objects after you explode them.

Enter bylayer to inherit the linetype of the exploded object's layer.

Enter byblock to inherit the linetype of the exploded object.

LWeight

Sets the lineweight of the component objects after you explode them.

Inherit from Parent Block

Sets the color, linetype, lineweight, and layer of the component objects to that of the exploded object if the component objects' color, linetype, and lineweight are BYBLOCK and the objects are drawn on layer 0.

Explode

Breaks a compound object into its component objects exactly as the EXPLODE command does.

Globally

Applies changes to all the selected objects.
