as if u doing a crop for an image but this time is a block
is that normal
this i see it in 2011
when i open it in acad 2008 there is no problem
thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
XCLIPFRAME = 0 to turn off.
That's a clip boundary. The benefit of leaving it on is that you can edit the clip from the boundary grips, and invert clipping side (likes making a hole inside your block, in your case, the boundary is larger than the block extent so when you invert it, you see nothing).
Perhaps the block has a wipeout and neglected to incoude it in the flip action?
well the xclip command by slecting the block and i turn it off
xclipframe=0 also works
how the xclip came in
and what the use of the xclip for a block
is this xclip comes with a dynamic block or somthing
here is the drawing (saved in 2010)
It's from any regular block or dynamic block after they got xclipped. In previous versions the xclip frame is invisible and uneditable but from 2011 you can set it visibility via the XCLIPFRAME variable and grip edit / invert it.
turning off the frames (setting to 0) doesn't get rid of the grips and flip arrow when you select it, which i found quite annoying.
Even more annoying is when you copy the block into another drawing it keeps that xclip boundary!
xclip delete seems to get rid of it thankfully...
I'm not going to xclip anymore because of this!
I stand corrected, it does not appear when select block with xclipframe = 0.
But you still have to turn it off again when you copy the block to a new dwg.
