I want the sides of this SVG image trimmed:
I tried opening it with Inkscape, selecting the region I want with the Rectangle tool and then Object → Clip → Set. But nothing happens.

^ Draw a rectangle around the object and make a copy of it (you'll need it once per path in the SVG).
^ Break apart the input SVG (using Ctrl+Shift+G to ungroup); this is the only way that this method works.
^ With each individual path, select it and the rectangle. Execute
Path > Intersection or Ctrl+Shift+8. You don't need to do this for a path if that path doesn't go outside of the crop area.
^ After doing this for each individual path, you can regroup the SVG if you want.
Hope that helps!
