Exactly how to select a *portion* of an object? Clicking any part of the object with the "selector tool" selects the entire object, not the desired portion. TIA!

I to would like to know where in the program inkscape can you crop an object or part of what ever you are working on

Hello,

You can either use the eraser tool (destructive, see http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL_v16/html/Eraser.html) or set a clip on the part of the object you want to keep (non destructive, see http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL_v16/html/Clip.html).

Regards.

Can you help with this problem?
