Hi everybody, I believe this will turn out to be a feature request, 'cause I can't find anything on destructive cropping. But just to be sure I post this one on the question forum first. I might be missing a feature here. I find myself looking for ways to destructive crop vector illustrations to bounds. By lacking a better feature for this I use the boolean tools everytime now, but that's pretty time consuming and far from efficient to do this. I know there are some ways to mask and crop things in a non-destructive way, but for the projects I do I need this to be destructive. What I am looking for is actually a way to 'apply' a mask or crop. I would be surprised if there is no feature for this, but I can't find one either. Anybody knows how to apply a mask/clip so the paths are changed destructively only leaving the wanted result? The way I do it now is just way too much work for a thing I do so often and not the nicest thing to do. Thanks! 20181027 destructive cropping.mp4
Is there any information on when, or even if, we will ever get a Destructive Crop option? Finally learned (thanks again to all who helped) how to create more than one border for an image but I still have to Save it as a Tiff, close the window, and reload the image if I have done any cropping or leveling.
There are times when it useful to permanently and completely get rid of all surplus material outside the image border. In other words a destructive crop. Could we have an option on the Crop tool property bar to do this please?
Is there an option in APhoto, as there is in Photoshop, to do a "Destructive" Crop? At this point, in order to actually eliminate the cropped off area, I have to Crop, then Export as Tiff, and re-Open the Tiff. Then I can resize and do other things without that freaking Non-Destructive Crop screwing things up. An option to turn it off (a set-once Preference would be even better) would make the already cumbersome process to add a mat, a Stroke (Outline) and a Drop Shadow (Outer Shadow) considerably less so.
