This command allows you to place a clipping rectangle on a Drawing page. Drawing View objects can then be added to that clipping rectangle, and their display will be truncated by the borders of the rectangle.

How to use

  1. Create a Drawing page
  2. Refresh the view if a Drawing view wasn't opened
  3. Press the Drawing Clip.png Drawing Clip button
  4. Adjust the desired properties, such as size and position.
  5. Drag and Drop Drawing View objects on the Clip object in the Tree View


  • A property allows you to show or hide the clipping rectangle itself.


  • Clipping objects are not displayed properly by the internal Qt-based Svg viewer, but the Open Browser command shows them correctly.
