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

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Modify > Xref Clip.
    • Type xclip and then press Enter.
  2. Select the desired external references.
  3. Press Enter.
  4. To turn off clipping boundaries, choose Off. To turn on existing clipping boundaries, choose On.
  5. 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 drawing.

TIP When the XCLIPFRAME system variable is on (set to 1), you can select and print the clipping boundary frame.
