I'm fairly new to Inkscape, so I was trying to clip the upper part of this letter "e" with a rounded rectangle, but when I do that instead of getting the usual result of having the area outside the rectangle removed I instead got the intersection of both objects filled up with black, as you can see in this GIF:

By the way, if I try to create a normal rectangle and clip the bottom object it clips exactly as intended.

  • I can't reproduce this. The animation is pretty fast to verify, what's written in the statusbar, but it doesn't look suspicious. Which version do you use/which OS? Jan 17 '17 at 12:45
  • @userunknown I'm using Inkscape 0.92.0 r15299 under Windows 10. Jan 25 '17 at 16:03
  • Well, I use 0.91 on Linux but that does not neccessarily mean, that this is the relevant difference. Maybe someone else can reproduce your problem or not with the same combination. Jan 25 '17 at 21:09
