Importing from an SDF file

We created an SDF file of contour lines. We want to import part of this file into another drawing. We go through the mapimport steps, indicating a crossing window from which to extract the lines.

 

The result is only those lines completely contained in the window. Any line that crosses the window is excluded.

 

We're drawing the window from right to left.

 

What are we doing wrong?

Nothing, well other than not posting in the MAP3D forums. :)

What you can do is import all of it then use the Boundary Trim and/or Break (_Maptrim as the command if you can't find it in the ribbon.) to trim out what you don't need or import it into a new dwg and use the xref tools and xref trim/mask.

Sorry about posting to the wrong forum. I don't do this often, and was hoping to get a quick response from someone.

 

We were hoping to avoid bringing the entire drawing into a new drawing because of the time it takes.

 

Are you saying that restricting the data to a window doesn't work? Is it a bug?
