Clips xrefs or images with lines and curves. Provides a way to clip specified portions of blocks, xref drawings, images, and wipeout objects, by clipping or removing the display of all other objects with a polyline, circle, arc, ellipse, text, mtext, or attribute definition. With the CLIPIT tool, you can use arcs, circles, or polylines to define clipping boundaries for blocks, xrefs, images, and wipeouts. CLIPIT makes clipping to curved boundaries possible by traversing arc segments with a series of short straight segments. You control the precision with which it traverses arc segments by specifying the maximum distance between the midpoint of any given segment and the arc: Entering a large error value results in fewer segments and faster performance, but arcs appear less smooth. Conversely, entering a very small value results in smooth clipping along arcs, but places more of a processing burden during regeneration.

Crops the display of a selected external reference or block reference to a specified boundary. Find Find The clipping boundary determines the portion of an xref or block instance that is hidden, either outside or inside the boundary. List of Options The following options are displayed. On Displays the clipped portion of the external reference or block in the current drawing.
Off Displays all of the geometry of the external reference or block in the current drawing, ignoring the clipping boundary. Clipdepth 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. Front Clip Point Creates a clipping plane passing through and perpendicular to the clipping boundary. Distance Creates a clipping plane the specified distance from and parallel to the clipping boundary.
Remove Removes both the front and back clipping planes. Delete 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. Generate Polyline 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. New Boundary Defines a rectangular or polygonal clipping boundary, or generates a polygonal clipping boundary from a polyline.
Select Polyline Defines the boundary with the selected polyline. The polyline can be open but must consist of straight line segments and cannot intersect itself.
Polygonal Defines a polygonal clipping boundary with three or more points that you specify for the vertices of a polygon. Rectangular 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. Note: You can only create a new clipping boundary for a selected XREF underlay when the old boundary is deleted.
