Dear sir or madam,
I have a problemen with drawing.
Step 1. I make a printscreen for test perpose.
Step 2. I imput the printscreen in libre drawing.

But i cannot cut certain sections with the points selection tool in the import screenshot.

Draw is an application for vector graphics.

Than the screenshot is selected and when i press cut, the hole screenshot it gone.
How can I edit insert images or screenshots?

You can crop the image to the section, but that will be rectangle. Make sure you have set the correct scale for the image. Select the cropped image. Then use File > Export. Mark 'Selection' and choose the desired format, likely png or jpg, and save the section as new image. Afterwards you can insert the new image.

Cropping itself does not really cut the parts of the picture, but only hides them.

Another way for several sections is this: Insert the image several times (which will result in 1 image stored) and crop each of it to the desired section.

If you want a not-rectangle section, there exists a complicate way to use a combined drawing object, to hide the not needed parts. But I recommend to use an application specialized for bitmaps.

Kind regards
