Redefine block entities to ByLayer

Many seasoned AutoCAD users prefer to create blocks on layer 0 (zero), and set the block entities to Bylayer so as to have maximum flexibility possible in block placement and Properties controls.

To repair such a setting in LT2008 or higher, redefine the block(s) with the SETBYLAYER command.
In older AutoCAD versions you can use the BEDIT or BLOCK commands to redefine the block(s), choice is limited by your LT version. ◦
