How to exit block edit

I used Autocad's block editor often and would like to do the same in DrafSight. When I double click on the block the screen changes and it allows me to edit in place. But I don't know how to exit the mode. I would prefer to edit in an editor but haven't found it yet.

RE: How to exit block edit

Right Click on empty space in your toolbar --> MAIN --> Make sure "Component" has a checkmark.

Right-Click on your block and then choose "Edit Block".
Choose which component of the block to edit

Make you changes to the block.

Once you are done making the changes look at the top of your screen where your toolbars are. The "Component" toolbar should be available (see pic attached). Click the "Save & Exit" button.

Thanks, that was exactly what I wanted!
