Chapter 11. Advanced Geometry Editing > Renaming Named Objects

Renaming Named Objects

AutoCAD objects fall into two inclusive categories: named and unnamed objects. Named objects are items that you name when you create them and are referred to by their assigned names. Examples of named objects include layers, block definitions, and text styles. Unnamed objects are objects such as lines, circles, and arcs, and cannot be assigned individual names.

Sometimes you need to rename a layer or a block because of changing conditions or simple typographic errors committed when you initially created the objects. To rename a named object, you can use the Rename dialog box (see Figure 11.28), which is invoked by choosing Rename from the Format pull-down menu.
