Is it possible to erase edges in a drawing view using a window to select?
Not via window selection.
only edge selection:
Depending on what you are trying to hide, you also have the option to hide components by editing the view.
Sort of. See below, in "Hide / Show Edges" mode (the red star indicates my cursor position before releasing). As you can see, the results aren't quite what you'd expect. I've had better luck with using a box to select closed profiles, such as circles.
You can use the Model Edge Filter
