Inkscape’s New Non-destructive Boolean Operation Live Path Effect | DMD Clips

Inkscape 1.1 introduces a new Boolean Operation live path effect that allows you to build a shape from multiple shapes or paths. This new LPE feature is non-destructive, meaning you can go back at any time and remove the effect to restore the original shapes or paths. Though this isn’t quite as intuitive or powerful as Adobe Illustrator’s Shape Builder tool, it does allow some of the same functionality in terms of combining or subtracting shapes using Boolean Operations.
