Match Properties Tool Not working as expected

Recommended Posts

When I select a block & attempt to match the block name other blocks are selected too.

Have I misunderstood the function of this tool?

That's how its always worked and its always frustrated me too.  That attribute you're using is Object Type not name.  Why it shows the name I don't know.  In that particular instance you should probably use the object type and the layer both to filter out the unwanted blocks.  Depending on what your trying to do, you can also use Replace From Library and/or apply some other different setting to allow for easier group selection in the future. 

 

It would definitely be nice of we could group select CAD Blocks based on Name though.  It's one of the many little things that has bothered me in the past but somehow hasn't made it onto my priority list of things to send in to tech support.

I see now, but the VALUE should be BLOCK and not Block106 which leads you to think it is a unique value.

The dialog is misleading.

It's frustrating to me that there are so many small improvements in Chief that would make our professional lives better.

As I do the tasks day after day I look for things that can streamline the process.
