Very simple cropping task I am having trouble finding the solution: I just want to “cut out” part of an image using a shape like a rectangle or an elipse. Selecting both, then SHAPE, INTERSECT, distorts the image, seems to try to fit the entire image into the shape, not at all what I want to do. Please somebody help.
I suspect Draw wants both objects to have the same boundary dimensions.
Right-click on the pixel image, select Crop and drag the crop handles in to just touch the shape extremities.
Click elsewhere to deselect. Select both objects, click
Shape > Intersect, the lower image will be cropped as expected.
As below, the first image was not cropped so squeezed the whole image within the boundary of the shape; the second was cropped. Cheers, Al
There is bug report: tdf#40259. Added there some coments.
@LeroyG great that you found the bug report and commented it; I didn’t even think to do that. Cheers, Al
