Choose the Crop Objects command in the Object menu to crop objects. The Crop Objects dialog appears. This is a non-modal dialog. In the first field, choose between 3 different Objects to crop modes:

  • All objects: All objects in a certain area are cropped.
  • All objects from selected symbols: All objects from selected symbols in the symbol box which are in a certain area are cropped.
  • Only chosen objects: All selected objects in the drawing area will be cropped. Click the Add selected objects button to choose the objects.

Choose between 2 different Line or area crop objects modes in the second field:

  • Use crop rectangle: All desired objects outside of a rectangle are cropped. Move and adjust the rectangle to the desired position and size.
  • Chosen line or area object All desired objects outside of a line or area object are cropped. Click the Choose selected crop object button to choose the crop object.

Check the option Cut a hole to cut a hole instead of cropping, i.e. all desired objects inside a range are cropped. Click the Crop button to finish.

Hint.jpg Unfortunately, it is not possible to Undo this function. Make sure you have saved your map before cropping or you really know what you are doing.
