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? – user unknown Jan 17 '17 at 12:45
  • @userunknown I'm using Inkscape 0.92.0 r15299 under Windows 10. – Nathan Campos 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. – user unknown Jan 25 '17 at 21:09
