It doesn't happen very often but sometimes it would be nice to explode a
xcliped block while keeping the stuff inside the clip boundary and
trimming/discarding everything outside the clip boundary. Is anyone aware
of a routine to do this?
I've tried that, but when you explode the block you get the whole block
showing up not just the clipped part.
As an example, we have some building sections that we've xref'd into a sheet
and then clipped to get just the details we want. We want to see if we can
find an easy way of just getting the clipped part so we can add the details
to our detail library without having to trim, erase, etc. the remainder of
the drawing. Obviously, there are ways to get the job done but the operative
word here is "easy" (translate as fast and mindless).
