I have a question. Can you clip/crop sections out of a raster image in Microstation Powerdraft Connect. Its seem I can get all the other tools to work ie. scale, rotate ect. but I cant cut a section out I need removed. Thanks!
If the raster has been geographically attached, I don't have any success.
When I am dealing with geographic rasters, I usually have to reference them into their own blank file. I can then attach that file where needed and clip and crop without problems.
If these are just images, There could be something else going on I haven't seen

Yes you can Clip a raster reference file in PowerDraft, but if you are using the Geographic re-projection BING maps, this is not possible. However, if you reference this file into another file you can clip the main DGN with the raster
Good Call Mary, I brought the raster image into a blank file edit as needed and then copied all the geometry into that file, then overwrote the original with that one. Still have to see if the client finds this approach satisfactory but I'm thinking it will be fine. Thanks so much!
FYI ecw files can only be clipped if they live a reference file and you do the clipping through the reference manager NOT the raster manager...

I have another question along this same line, and actually in this same drawing. I was able to clip the images and all was well until I printed the drawing. When doing so, the line denoting the boundary of the clip block shows up as a line in the printout. Is there a way to make this not happen>
