A crop view focuses on a portion
of a drawing view by hiding all but a defined area. The uncropped portion
is enclosed using a sketch, usually a spline or other closed contour.
You can crop any drawing view except a Detail View or a view from which
a Detail View has been created. Crop
View can save steps because you do not create a new view. For example,
instead of creating a Section View and then a Detail View, then hiding
the unnecessary Section View, you can crop the Section View directly.
