Crop model space

I thought there is command that will crop a window area in model space to minimize the amount of objects. Does this ring a bell to anyone?

-VPORTS?  This splits the model space but doesn't crop it. 

 

Are you going into model space from paper space (ie double clicking in a viewport? Maybe this is what you're after?

 

Do you remember any specifics/details of what you did before.?  Your question is a little skimpy on them.

If it's an XREF (or a giant block), yes, you can use XCLIP command.

Otherwise you can fake it in modelspace with a viewport, or zoom in real tight and resist zooming out :smileyhappy:

Try the EXTRIM command.
