Trim or Conceal Objects Outside Document Borders

Post by Eidolon » Sun 20 Sep 2020 21:45

Greetings.

Perhaps this question is elementary.

I have a layout consisting of vector objects. Some of the objects extend beyond the document borders.

If I move the layout into another layout, the objects outside the borders remain visible. How do I trim or conceal them? “Hide Border Content” does not seem to work here.

Thank you.

Add a clipping layer:
- In the original layout use the command "Edit > Deselect".
- Use the command "Layout > Vector > Fit in Vector Layer": This will create a rectangular vector layer at the top of the document.
- Make the vector layer a clipping layer by right-clicking the eye in Layer List panel and choosing "Clip".

If you group your layout afterwards, you can reuse it in other doucments and the borders will be clipped.
