Selecting what to export to a pdf file

Hello! 

I received a .dwg file from my architect. I can open it in AutoCAD 360 (on PC, windows 10). I need to print only a part of the MODEL layout. How can I choose what part of the drawing I want to export to a pdf file? I see only EXTENDS or DISPLAY options and none of that helps.

Or is there another tool that's more appropriate for the task? I just need a to make some measurements on that .dwg file and print it:) 

DISPLAY is about the only option to do what you want: put what you want to print full screen first, or as close as you can get, then use the DISPLAY option.

yes, it's not perfect. yes, it could be improved. No, nothing you can do about it today except to get a desktop CAD program that gives you total plotting control.
