Building blocks window
The building blocks window lists all the building blocks available in the current and linked databases, and allows you to work with them.
To open the building blocks window, press F8 or click on the sidebar item under Design.
Use this to open and manage building blocks. You can also set up building blocks for quick access on the sidebar.
Ways to open building blocksYou can open a building block from the building blocks window by pressing Open or double clicking on it. This will open it in design mode.
If you have assigned a building block to a sidebar section, and you click on it from there, it will open in end-user mode, which hides some or all of the design features.
