Subject: Creating and saving a block using the Block Editor



When you create a block using the Block Editor, you specify its name and then draw the entities that compose the block directly in the drawing area. While creating the block in-place, you can save the block with its existing name or a new name.

The insertion point of the created block is automatically defined relative to the UCS.
