Your lucky, you can only do this on 2014.  Click on the boundry and the option will appear in your icon area.

I'm obviously not doing it right as when I click on the boundary I only get the option to Size Crop (which just changes the size of the rectangle) or Activate View.

 

I've tried creating a callout using the sketch command, which works, but when I place the view on the sheet it leaves a white rectangle around the view. See attached.

I don't know what that image was supposed to show.

While on a sheet, activate the view.  In view properties, turn on view cropping and show crop bondries.  Click on the boundry and you will see the options.

Yes, I have tried that, but as in the attached image it replaces the area you cut out with a white recatngle. It doesn't so much crop the view as mask out the area. Look at the screenshot I uploaded and you will see there is a big white rectangle masking out a large area of sky etc.

I would like to place one view over another, and be able to see the view behind through the cropped out area so that I can have a different graphic style to the interior and exterior of a building (I don't want shaddows inside my building but do outside).

Yes, two over lapping views. I would like to crop the view at the front (on top) and be able to see the veiw behind through the area cropped out. I will then move top view to line up exactly with the one below (they are sections through the same line). This way I will, hopefully achieve the graphic that I am after.

This is a section where the interior of the building is in hidden line with no shadows and the exterior will be in colour with shadows.

This is a planning application so the drawings nead to be easily understood by members of the public. The interior needs really stand out as differnet from the exterior and I don't want to show shadows within the room or people will say "oh, isn't it dark in there!". The shadows are from the top left as is standard for an architectural drawing to best define form, and so they do not represent actual daylight penetration.

So follow my instructions on the view you want cropped.

I have tried that; activate the view, click on Edit Crop and then modify the boundary line, but the area I cut out loses its transparency and gets filled with white, so I can't see the view behind.

I think what the OP is saying is even with a custom crop region, a rectangular mask is created based on the outer extents of the custom crop shape.

Now the question makes sense.....

Maybe you have to use muliple views ... each cropped to the different limits then placed so they look like one view.

Not really the answer I was after. I had already though of that but was hoping there was a proper way to achieve the effect without bodging it.

 

Thanks anyway.

If you delete the blocked view from the sheet and re-post it, the latest view to the sheet will be on top.
