To break objects at a boundary
- Open a drawing and attach the maps you
- Define and execute a query to retrieve
the objects to break.
- In the Break Objects at Boundary dialog box,
under Boundaries, choose how to specify the boundaries for breaking:
- Use Save Back Extents
Of Active Source Drawings — Uses the combined extents
of all active source drawings as the boundary.
- Select Boundaries — Allows
you to choose existing objects in the current drawing. These objects
need to form a closed area but do not need to be single objects.
Click Select and select the objects
- Define Boundary — Allows
you to draw a single closed boundary on screen. Click Define and
specify the boundary.

specify whether to select objects manually or automatically, and
whether to use only objects on selected layers.
- Under Break Method,
specify whether to exclude topology objects, and whether to retain
object data on the objects.
- Click OK.
- In the Confirm Save Back dialog
box, click Yes.
The objects are broken
according to the location of the save back extents.
To save the data back to the source drawings
after a boundary break
- Under What To Save,
make sure that both Save Queried Objects and Save Newly
Created Object are selected.
- Under Save Order For Newly
Created Objects, select Area. Click OK.
