How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

Heres my answer to this question from the Google+ Query on the Inscape Community:

to create that shape I’d just use the arc tool – even if you draw a circle, you can select the circle tool (F5) and select the circle and change your start and end degrees. But is the posted image just a simple example to make the point?

I guess if I was going to cut down the circle to make a half-circle (same can be done with more complex shapes) I’d select the circle and the rectangle above and chose Path -> Intersection. That cuts it to the shape I’m wanting to have left over – and leaves all the remaining points as an editable path.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
