Remove Lines from Xref

Hi,

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.

Hope this makes sense,

Cheers

Simple answer. No.

If you remove the lines from a drawing then they are not there to reference
into "any" drawings.

Options are layering or using wipeouts in the target drawing.

You can try the following convoluted trick:
Xref the drawing with contour lines in and rename it in the xref dialog
window
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
DONE!!!

G'day,

Are you working in paperspace and using a viewport to look at the model or is this a pure modelspace exercise?
