Xref not cropped correclty

Question

I am using 12.5 to import a set of DWG prints of our facility so we can update them. The person that created the prints seemed to take snapshots of the floor plan cropped similar to our viewports, then did markups on that. When I import, the floor plan comes through in its entirety, overlapping any other details that are next to it on the same page. Has anyone encountered this, and is there a workaround other than converting it to lines and deleting what I don't need piece by piece?

Use cropped Design Layer Viewports as the detail bases like the Autocad user did and work over these.

Thank you for responding so quickly to my question. Either I don't understand your answer, or that will not work because the overlapping floor plans from the other details will still show up in my veiwports. I am attaching two screenshots - one is the drawing veiwed in DWG trueview, and the other after importing it to vectorworks to show what I am seeing.

Is each of the 'imported plans' that came in a symbol?

Are the 'imported plans' on the same Design Layer?

They do seem to be a symbol and everything is on the same design layer. One workaround I have come up with is to convert them into lines and line by line cut/crop the floorplan down to the parts I want to keep.

Did they come from Archicad or from Autocad?

If they came from Archicad ask them to provide you with a DWG using the 03 For as is output method. That method produces WYSIWYG 2D DWGs.

Are the dwg viewports made in paper space? If so you should have the same corresponding viewports cropped in the sheet layers + the different plans each have their own class in the design layer.... Ie you can hide each separate plan model by hiding its class........
