I would like to remove (like in cut away) a circular portion from a rectangle, leaving an open object. Tried using the Path > Difference tool, but it results in a closed object.
Attached image (screen shot from Inkscape, edited in MS-Paint so looks bit crude), explains what I am trying to achieve.
You probably just have to “convert path to object” (
Ctrl-Alt-C) before the substraction.
