Hi Hernando,
With the "region" option of "volume" you can specify the subregion directly, e.g.

volume #2 region 13,4,0,22,25,29

... but in that case you would need to know the grid indices you want; it does not use the hand-drawn box.

However, you can give different cropped subregions different names ahead of time with the "volume" command "nameRegion" option,  and then switch between them in the display by name using this "region" option.  These options are explained in the link above.

I thought there might be a keyboard shortcut for it, but I don't see one.  I only see a keyboard shortcut "eb" to erase the map inside the box.

The shortcuts themselves:

You can use accelerators directly as commands with the "ac" command, for example to use the "eb" shortcut, command:

ac eb


I hope this helps,
