Will you correct my understanding of hierarchy?

Good morning.

 

Will you correct my understanding of hierarchy? I was told that hierarchical design enables instantiating multiple, identical components (in the form of blocks) and controlling their function by editing one common base schematic; is that correct?

 

So far i can create a quasi-hierarchical design by making a block, copying it's reference under the "Blocks" heading in Navigator, and then pasting a duplicate block back into "Blocks". This seems to defeat the purpose of hierarchy....

 

Thank you for providing insight,
