Selection box is bigger than rectangle, it’s like full object without clip

How can I setup this functionality?


  1. In preferences (Ctrl+Shift+p)

  3. And find the “Bounding box to use” setting

Set the radio button from “Geometric bounding box” to “Visual bounding box“.

Preferences screen of Inkscape
