Xref clip boundary problem

Post by fjt_aus » Mon Apr 30, 2007 5:51 am

I am trying to clip an xref using a polyline as the boundary. When the prompt asks me to select a polyline... I can't! It works fine if I draw a rectangle but won't let me select a polyline.
Help!

It looks like this command really only wants to select a lwpolyline, and not regular (heavyweight) polylines. To draw a lwpolyline, type PLINETYPE and set the value to 2, then any new polylines you draw will be lwpolylines, which seems to make the xclip command happy.
