Adding clipping boundaries

When you create a clipping boundary, it affects only the display of the referenced drawing; it does not affect the original referenced drawing or any referenced geometry. The portion of the external reference within the clipping boundary is visible and the remainder of the external reference becomes hidden.

To define a rectangular clipping boundary

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Modify > Xref Clip.
    • Type xclip and then press Enter.
  2. Select the external references to clip. If desired, you can also select blocks.
  3. Press Enter.
  4. Press Enter to create a new clipping boundary.
  5. If prompted, press Enter to delete any existing boundaries.
  6. Choose Rectangular.
  7. Define the first corner of the clipping rectangle.
  8. Define the second corner of the clipping rectangle.

    The selected external references are clipped by the rectangle.


    TIP You can first select all external references, right-click the selection, and then select Xref Clip from the shortcut menu.


To define a clipping boundary using a polyline

  1. Draw a polyline where you want to clip external references.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Modify > Xref Clip.
    • Type xclip and then press Enter.
  3. Select the external references to clip. If desired, you can also select blocks.
  4. Press Enter.
  5. Press Enter to create a new clipping boundary.
  6. If prompted, press Enter to delete any existing boundaries.
  7. Choose Select Polyline.
  8. Select the polyline to use as clipping boundary.
