The lists of prompts of cad write block
Source: Specify the objects written in the Wblock.
Block: Specify an existing interior block to save as a file of Write Block. Select the name from the list.
Preview: If an existing block is selected under Name, display a preview of the block.
Entire Drawing: Specify the entire drawing to save as a file of Write Block. The intersect base point is the origin point of coordinate(0,0,0).
Objects: Specify an object to written into the Write Block file.
Base Point: Specify the base point for the block. It is only available when the object is an origin entity.
Objects: Specify the entity of the write block. Sets the effect of block creation on objects used to create a block, Retain, Convert to Block or Delete from Drawing. It is only available when the object is an origin entity.
Destination: Specifies the new name and location of the file and the units of measurement to be used when the block is inserted. It includes the following options:
File Name and Path: Specifies a file name and path where the block or objects will be saved. Click the input dialog, a list of paths for users to choose. You can also click on the right button to bring up the Browse for Folder dialog box, the system provides more paths to choose from.

The write block is a DWG drawing file actually. If you specify the entire drawing to save as a file of Write Block, the unused layers, block, linear definitions will be deleted automatically. As the All option in the Purge commend, after clearing the files, the system will copy the file whose bytes are less comparing with the original file.
All Dwg graphics files can be regarded as the external block to insert into other graphics file. The difference is that user can set the intersection point of the external block file defined by the Wblock command while the insertion point in the graphic file defined by the NEW command is (0,0,0) when you insert them into other graphics.
