Turning clipping boundaries on and off
You can turn xref clipping on or off. When a clipping boundary is turned off,
the boundary does not display and the entire external reference is visible,
provided that the geometry is on a layer that is on and thawed. When a clipping
boundary is turned off, it still exists and can be turned on. However, deleting
a clipping boundary is permanent.
To turn clipping boundaries on and off
- Do one of the following:
Select the desired external references.
To turn off clipping boundaries, choose Off. To turn on existing clipping
boundaries, choose On.
- Choose Modify > Xref Clip.
- Type xclip and then press Enter.
If you are turning off a clipping boundary, click the clipped portion
of the external reference to view the previously hidden portion of the referenced
TIP When the XCLIPFRAME system variable is on (set to 1),
you can select and print the clipping boundary frame.
