To create a insertion point for blocks - as in Autocad - follow this procedure. (Normally Dcad creates the insertion point at the center of selected objects, I think)
1. Create the objects
2. Select the objects
3. Change the Reference Point for the objects (ALT+D) to wherever you want it.
4. Type B (for block -- or select the Create Blocks icon). Press ENTER.
While on this topic, a request:
Could we have the option of selecting the "Insertion Point" ,as in Autocad? Also the shortcut - I - for inserting blocks. And -- click & click (click once on the selected block in the Blocks Palette, another time at the place to insert. ) Instead of click-drag.
Sorry, this is not one
request -- I know -- but related, no?
