JTB BatchAttEdit 3.0 - Batch Attribute Editor for BricsCAD and AutoCAD

JTB BatchAttEdit 3.0 has been released. Here are the news:

  • Added BricsCAD support.
  • Added block's insertion point X, Y, Z columns.
  • Added Hide/Show columns option.
  • Fixed bug when pasting from Excel, an unwanted empty row is pasted at bottom of the selection.
  • Fixed bug when running AttSync, it resets value of empty attribute reference.

This batch attribute editor app for AutoCAD and BricsCAD collects attributes in all blocks of specified name patterns in multiple drawings and display in a wide spreadsheet. Then you can edit attribute texts as easy as working with Excel. Once done, click "Apply Attribute Changes" to update values to drawings.

This makes it a great app to for example edit title block attributes across many drawings instead of having to do it one drawing at a time. How do you edit all title block data?

If you want to export the attributes to Excel use the "Export - Import" button. Optionally you can make modifications in Excel for example with help of functions and formulas and then import back.

Try it for free by downloading from JTB BatchAttEdit. Existing customers just need to download and install this update.

Some older Autodesk software will stop working on/after June 15, 2019, update available

Are you using Autodesk software that was released between the years 2013-2015 like for example AutoCAD 2016? If so your software might stop working soon unless doing this update.

Transport Layer Security (TLS): Updates Required to Maintain Software Access details:

Issue:
Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0/1.1 is vulnerable to man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack that can compromise data exchanges. This applies to single-user subscribers using the software versions listed below; customers using software or versions not listed and customers using perpetual or multi-user (network) licenses will not be affected.
Environment:
This issue affects a selection of Autodesk software used on Windows, Mac, and Linux versions 2014, 2015, 2016 and/or 2017 (Mac only).
If you are using 2018, 2019, or 2020 versions, your software and account are not affected.
Solution:
To align with industry best practices for security and data integrity, Autodesk Identity Services will move to Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 and stop supporting TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 on June 15, 2019.
The best solution to avoid connectivity issues is to download and install a newer version of your software through Autodesk Account or our Autodesk Virtual Agent (AVA).
We have been developing patches to prevent (or resolve) this issue as part of Autodesk’s ongoing efforts to provide the best security possible to our customers. Subscribers using the software versions listed below will need to download the appropriate License & Identity patch by June 15, 2019. These patches will support TLS 1.2 and above.
