CCNA.LSP lets you cut a rectangular hole into a drawing and place the entities elsewhere via the clipboard.

A Clip Tip You'll Flip For
Did you ever wish you could clip parts out of a drawing just by selecting a rectangle? Cut a Hole (Tip #2020) from Tommy Holder may be just what you are looking for. Load and run this utility and you'll see the amazing results (figure 4).

You can cut a hole into the drawing and place the entities elsewhere via the clipboard. Load the LSP file then type CCNA at the AutoCAD Command prompt. The function prepares a couple of layers, then asks if you'd like some instruction on using the utility. The default answer is No, and after pressing the enter key you are asked to select the two points defining the rectangular cut-out section. You can copy the objects to the clipboard only for use in other Windows applications or use the Paste option to insert them back into your drawing. This function draws a rectangle where the cut is made and performs a variety of AutoCAD commands automatically to achieve a very useful result. A tip of the hat from Harry to Tommy for a job well done.
