Shortcut menu: Select
an xref, right-click in the drawing area, and click Clip Xref.
The clipping boundary determines the portion
of an xref or block instance that is hidden, either outside or inside
the boundary. The visibility of the clipping boundary is controlled
by the XCLIPFRAME system
Use the generic CLIP
to clip images, external references, viewports, and underlays.
List of Options
The following options
Displays the clipped portion of the external reference
or block in the current drawing.
Displays all of the geometry of the external reference
or block in the current drawing, ignoring the clipping boundary.
Sets the front and back clipping planes on an xref
or block. Objects outside the volume defined by the boundary and
the specified depth are not displayed. Regardless of the current
UCS, the clip depth is applied parallel to the clipping boundary.
Creates a clipping plane passing through and perpendicular
to the clipping boundary.
Creates a clipping plane the specified distance from
and parallel to the clipping boundary.
Removes both the front and back clipping planes.
Removes a clipping boundary for the selected xref
or block. To temporarily turn off a clipping boundary, use the Off
option. Delete erases the clipping boundary and the clipdepth. The ERASE command
cannot be used to delete clipping boundaries.
Automatically draws a polyline coincident with the
clipping boundary. The polyline assumes the current layer, linetype,
lineweight, and color settings. Use this option when you want to modify
the current clipping boundary using PEDIT and
then redefine the clipping boundary with the new polyline. To see
the entire xref while redefining the boundary, use the Off option.
Defines a rectangular or polygonal clipping boundary,
or generates a polygonal clipping boundary from a polyline.
Defines the boundary with the selected polyline.
The polyline can be open but must consist of straight line segments
and cannot intersect itself.
Defines a polygonal clipping boundary with three
or more points that you specify for the vertices of a polygon.
Defines a rectangular boundary with the points that
you specify for opposite corners.
- Invert Clip
Inverts the mode of the
clipping boundary: objects are clipped either outside the boundary or
inside the boundary.
NoteYou can only create
a new clipping boundary for a selected XREF underlay when the old
boundary is deleted.
