Inkscape Extension: Layer Clip

Published › April 30, 2012 0 Comments


This is a a set of Inkscape extension scripts for setting and removing clip paths for entire layers. Inkscape has no trouble rendering or editing layers with clip paths, but it currently has no built-in method of setting the clip path for a layer, this is the purpose of these extensions.

Features include: Clip containing layer, Clip layer above, Clip layer below, Clip parent layer.

Notes: You must select an object in the clipping layer before applying the extension, otherwise you will receive an error message. It is a good idea to lock the layer after the extension has been applied. You may also require hiding the clipping layer when using “Clip layer below”.
