The Block Palette in Autodesk AutoCAD 2020

Autodesk has improved the way blocks are inserted with the newly designed blocks palette in AutoCAD 2020.


We improved the way you insert blocks with the new blocks palette.

The palette includes visual thumbnails of blocks making it easier to insert blocks from the current drawing, recent or other drawings tabs.

You can select how much information you want to see on the palette by choosing from various list types or different icon display sizes and it’s easy to filter for the exact block you are looking for.

The recent tab displays the most recently inserted blocks, regardless of the current drawing. These persist between drawings and sessions.

The blocks palette includes a visual preview of the blocks along with insertion options like insertion point, scale, rotation and more.

Place blocks from the palette by dragging and dropping, or by clicking on the block and placing it into the drawing for more precision.

Based on customer feedback, we added an option to repeat block placement.
