The CP_COMPAREBLKATTS command in CADPower (CADPower -> Blocks -> Block-related -> Compare Block attributes and create report) is used to investigate blocks with attributes and compare attribute tags and values.
You can perform checks for Attribute tags, values or Both. This command has been in CADPower for a while now but has been significantly enhanced in the latest cut 14.19, bug-fixed and completely re-written.
Notable enhancements include:
- full support for dynamic blocks
- re-orderd but same tags in two blocks are now recognized and treated as unique tags
- Report file format has been improved, clutter-removed
- command names, dwg name and processing date/time added in report file.
The CP_COMPAREBLKATTS command only compares block attributes and reports unique tags and values across blocks. It does not tell you what exactly are the differences between two blocks that may have a similar attribute structure. That is planned for a future CADPower command called CP_ATTDIFF.
