App to quickly copy a rectangular window of selected objects out from your drawing, and trim everything outside the window's edges. The result can be copied to the current drawing or to the clipboard.
A very useful tool to quickly extract details from a master plan drawing.
Run the TrimWindow command from the ribbon or command line, and you will be asked to pick 2 corners of a rectangle selection. Let's call it the TrimWindow.
Then, all supported drawing objects within the TrimWindow will be trimmed and copied to another location.
- To trim 3D polylines, copied objects are flattened to the XOY plane. Original objects are unchanged.
- Supported object types are 2D line, curve, 3D poly, dimension, and leader. Text and hatch are copied only, not trimmed.
A 15-day trial is available here.
