Can you create a cropped Surface from a Surface created by pasting Dreffed Surfaces.
I get an "Error creating cropped surface" message each time I try. The command line looks like this:
Select first corner or [Object/Polygon]: O
Select objects: 1 found
Select point in the area to crop:
The Point is the point I picked inside the closed polyline I pick as an Object. The boundary of that area highlights showing it has accepted that as the cropping boundary. I have also tried tracing the polyline point by point. The command line then shows all the points I picked.

I had read about that. But that's not the problem in my case.
I'm almost thinking I'll have to go back and crop each original surface individually then Dref and paste them together.
Sorry Allen, I was not able to do it either. My previous suggestion was based on what I thought I had read on the forums.
I've concluded there are 3 parts to a learning curve:
1) What do the tools do
2) How can you apply them to meet varying scenarios
3) What are their deficiencies and limitations
Unfortunately parts 2 and 3 are learned largely through trial and error and a lot of time researching workarounds.
As I mentioned earlier, I can't get that to work. Have you tried it Mike?
Mike is right. If you create a New Surface and paste the composite Surface that was created by pasting the Drefs in to. Then you can Crop the New Surface. This is the way it would work.
That results in a new drawing with the cropped Surface.
