You can try the following convoluted trick:
Xref the drawing with contour lines in and rename it in the xref dialog
Xref teh same drawing with contour lines in
Now you have 2 xrefs but with different layer name prefixes.
XClip the first Xref that you renamed so it shows only the area with the
contour lines you want to be removed
Turn off the first Xref layers with the contour lines in the area shown
XClip the second Xref so it doesn't show the area with the contour lines

can anyone tell me if it is possible to remove a set of lines from an xref
without effecting any of the other drawings tied to the xref?
I have a drawing showing contours but a certain area of the drawing needs to
be clear of the contour lines.
