    Block Count

    Block count is a useful command that can be used to find out how may blocks are contained in a drawing. Block Count reports the block name(s) along with the number of each instance of block used in the drawing.



    1. Open a drawing containing blocks (Fig 1 shows a drawing containing different named blocks).
    2. Type BCOUNT into the command line and press enter to confirm the command.
    3. To display the blocks for the entire drawing, press enter without making a selection, or select the relevant parts of the drawing and press enter.
    4. Increase the height of the command line to display the information (Fig 2).


    Note: The block should be visible in the drawing area.
