Hola Jose (Joe)

Again, bothering here in this place....  :ugly:

Not sure.... but
The only one that I remember is the one that Bill Kramer did, many years ago, but do not recall if it was also for blocks.

Hola Luis,

Do you recall the name of Bill's routine?

Thanks, Luis.

I tried the routine, but I probably don't understand what it is intended to do.

As I see the task, just select a closed object and the routine does the rest.

I see, that routine came to my mind, it was something closer, of what you are trying to do.

BTW, have you tried to convert the selection to an annon or temp block and use something similar like the command clipit? but, I guess you want to trim the objects
sorry I have not done or needed something like this, so I can be of more help.

Hola Luis,

Right, I want to trim the objects to the clipping object. Something I'd normally do with xclip, either with a block or an xref.

The reason is a project is in the construction phase and we are receiving many requests for information (RFIs) from the general contractor. To answer these I often need to chop out a portion of a larger file, usually a plan, in order to generate a stand-alone document. Notes are added which only pertain to the RFI.

This also serves as a record keeping device. Plus the source/base files may be further modified without effecting the RFI document.
