I want the sides of this SVG image trimmed:

enter image description here

I tried opening it with Inkscape, selecting the region I want with the Rectangle tool and then Object → Clip → Set. But nothing happens.


The rectangle used to clip. ^ Draw a rectangle around the object and make a copy of it (you'll need it once per path in the SVG). The input SVG broken apart ^ Break apart the input SVG (using Ctrl+Shift+G to ungroup); this is the only way that this method works. Selecting each path one-by-one and using Path Intersection to crop them ^ 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. The final result ^ After doing this for each individual path, you can regroup the SVG if you want.

Hope that helps!
