    CROP / Print Linked CAD in sheets, to scale and with fixed paper size

    Linking the CAD with lines that exceed the titleblock produces this result and I am unable to print it exactly to scale and paper size just like in autocad.

    I think there might be 2 ways to resolve this.
    1. Crop/clip the linked CAD in Revit, just like XCLIP in AutoCAD.
    2. Manual selection of window to print just like in AutoCAD.

    After searching around in forum and google, here are some observations:
    1. Revit will print whatever is in the sheet starting from the bottom left corner.
    2. XCLIP-ing the file in AutoCAD before linking it does not work.

    Attached files for reference.

    You need to Crop your View.
    I the Properties of the View you're placing on the Sheet, there's a check box to Crop View (about 2/3 of the way down)
    There's also a Crop Region Visible so you can see where the crop is.
    It's not XCLIP - this affects the entire View - but it should get you what you need.

      Another solution to printing things on sheets, that are larger than the sheet, is to add some invisible lines to your title block that extend out equally in horizontal and vertical directions, further than whatever is on the sheet. Then if you print with 'Centred' the sheet will always be properly aligned.

      This is very useful if you want to print a single schedule over several pages. You can split the schedule on the sheets and leave the part you dont want to print outside the sheet border.

        Or, Autodesk could let us spread a Schedule across multiple pages.
