Creating complex entities

Drawing wipeouts

Wipeouts are unique entities that can help you hide areas of your drawing. They dis-play with the current background color, so the details behind the wipeout do not dis-play or print.
Wipeouts are similar to other entities -- you can copy, mirror, array, erase, rotate, and scale them, and they can be used in both model space and paper space.
If you want to print the wipeout entities located in a drawing, you must print to a ras-ter-capable printer. Note that in some cases you may have unexpected results when printing drawings that contain wipeout entities, for example, if printing on colored paper.

NOTE If your version of progeCAD does not include raster image capability (that is, does not include an Image menu), wipeout entities display, but the details behind the wipeouts also display.
