Q. Is there any Easiest way to change attributes?

We have so many attributes in our drawing, it takes too much time to change those all.

Burst command will break the block so that I don't need.


A. If you are referring to changing the data inside the attributes, I would suggest using the AutoCAD Express Tool "Export Attribute Information", then open the data in Excel (make sure you choose to open the data as Text in Excel).

Make your changes to the data in Excel, then save the file as a Text file and use the Express Tool "Import Attribute Information" to bring the data back into AutoCAD.
