Apply or remove a clipping path
A clipping path is a path or shape that is applied to another object, hiding the portions of the object that fall outside of the clipping path. To create clipping paths that are more intricate than a simple path, ellipse, or rectangle, you can use the Expression Blend combining tools. For more information, see Combining paths.
To apply a clipping path
- Select the path or shape that you want to turn into a clipping path, hold
CTRL, and then
select the object that you want to clip.
Make sure that the clipping path object is in front of (in Z order) the object that you intend to clip. To move an object in front of another, right-click the object, point to Order, and then click Bring Forward or Bring to Front.
- On the Object menu, point to Path, and click Make Clipping Path.
To remove a clipping path
- Select the object that is being clipped.
- On the Object menu, point to Path, and then click Remove Clipping Path.
