visual clipping frame size

visual clipping frame size


i'm trying to clip a view by 'visual clipping', but i'm not able to reduce the size of the original frame; could someone help me with this?

thanks in advance

RE: visual clipping frame size

Hi ajangiz,

I'm not quite sure what you mean but try this anyway.
If you have the Origin of the view showing it will not allow
the view to be reduced in size, just put the Origin
(x,y plane) into No-Show and the view should reduce to the
size of your clipping window.

Hope this helps,

RE: visual clipping frame size

thank you jakey, but i don't manage to change the size yet... i'll try to explain it clearer...

i want only a certain area of the view to be shown. i've seen that the fastest way to do this is right click the view> Properties> visual clipping...

i have a new frame now. i can move it but can't change its size (i tried hiding the origin away as you said but no way)... there must be an easy way to do this

if anyone could help...

RE: visual clipping frame size

Hello ajangiz,

When you enable visual clipping from view properties and that clipping frame appears there is a box on each corner of the frame. Just pick the box with mb1 and you can drag the box to resize the frame.
