Show Partial XREF using XCLIP

Many times we refer to an external drawing, but we only need to show part of it. Sometimes we use a viewport to show the area we need on paperspace. Now I will tell you how you can show partial xref using the XCLIP command.

To achieve that do the following:

  1. Type XCLIP in the command line then select the XREF when prompted to select object.
  2. For clipping options select NEW.
  3. For boundary there are many options: Polyline, polygonal, rectangular, invert clip. I usually use rectangular, but choose the best fit for your needs.
  4. Once you select one of the options, for example, if you choose rectangular, just draw a rectangle around the area you want to show from the XREF and that is it!
