Subject: Clipping layout viewports



You can clip layout viewports so that only a portion of the viewport is visible on a Layout tab. You can clip layout viewports in the shape of a new polygon or an exist­ing circle, ellipse, closed spline, closed polyline, or region.

If you delete clipping from a layout viewport, the clipping is removed permanently but the viewport itself and its contents remain in the drawing.
