I have a large building map imported from a DWG file and I want to only keep one region:

enter image description here

Is there a way to do this not by masking the outter region, but removing all shapes outside my region.

If the map is vectorial:

  • Make a rectangle around the area to be preserved
  • Select all
  • Use the Shape Builder Tool + Alt
  • Click the paths outside the rectangle to delete them

Or:

  • Make a rectangle around the area to be preserved
  • Select all
  • From the Pathfinder Panel press Divide

  • This is exactly what I do, but this could ba very slow process. Is there any straightforward solution ? – nowox Oct 3 '19 at 10:50
