Any fill other than a uniform fill requires clipping when an object is not rectangular, because these fills are sent to printing devices as bitmaps, and bitmaps are rectangular. Clipping removes portions of a fill that should not be visible. The default setting for clipping is controlled by the driver, because this usually means faster processing. If you encounter a problem printing nonuniform fills, switch control over clipping to the software.
This option applies to non-PostScript printing devices only.
