Do you have the sketched rectangle selected when you choose "Crop View"? (I usually fine that even selecting just one line of the sketch is enough)
Try removing the two centerlines and the point.
Remove everything inside the rectangle. That should correct your problem.
If you've done it this way before, perhaps you didn't have the center lines selected and now you do select them? Just a tought.
It happened to me sometimes when I have a sketch over a "complicated" section which SW failed to calculated it
Can you move the sketch around (to left or right) and try again ?
So if it asks for a sketch, it means it didn't recognize your rectangle. Try making sure the rectangle or circle is selected before selecting the crop view icon.
My testing in SW2018 sp2 yielded:
If you create a center rectangle and start the crop view right away, it works even with the construction lines and point selected.
If you create a center rectangle and don't start the crop view right away and reselect all of the entities, crop view complains and fails.
Below, I interrupted the workflow and I've reselected everything and clicked crop view:
When I reselect by Ctrl+clicking just the solid lines, crop view works as intended w/o having to recreate the sketch:
- Don't take a break between the sketch and crop view
- If you do take a break between the sketch and crop view, reselect only the solid lines
- Don't use center rectangle so you can box select if you're interrupted
I hope this helps.
You rock Kevin!

So this is a feature needed to be enhanced in SW2018 - Will try to see if it' the same with SW2017
