Hello,

The bitmap crop feature will be available in 0.49 (no release date yet).
With 0.48, you can use the following workaround:
1. Draw a shape on your bitmap, masking the part you want to keep.
2. Select the shape and the bitmap and use Object>Clip>Set.
3. Select the resulting object and make a bitmap copy (Alt+B).
4. Select the bitmap copy and trace.

But I'm not sure it's faster than using an external tool (like Gimp)...

Regards.

Can you help with this problem?
