Self-Managed Block problem

Question asked by charles.ietswaard1 on May 26, 2020

Hi All,


In our library we have Self-Managed Blocks. The schematics that belong to such a block all have a sheet border.


But then, we updated the sheet border in the library.  And now, when you place a managed block on a new schematic you run into problems.



Due to the update on the sheet border, the border has a new date. But in the managed block, the 'old' border still exists with a different date. The fix seems obvious. Update the managed block with the new border and you are in business again. 

However, there are a few problems with this solution.
  • Only our Library Manager has edit rights on the library.  When he is not available you can not continue.
  • You have to do this for every managed block with the 'old' sheet border. If you only have a few managed blocks so be it, but what to do when the collection of managed blocks is growing????
Has anybody ran into this problem and come up with a workable solution?
regards, Charles
