I was always wondering why "my" edge mode settings we're not working as intended - and now I see why.. ..kind of.
If I use FP (library preset in this case) on a surface ONLY it does work properly, overlapping elements are cut. Perfect.
On large surfaces I normally turn off the surface and add several paint areas, set to include.
Works perfectly - except the edge mode: clumps are still overlapping the surface edge - please see image attached.
The paint area boundary is perfectly cut, only the surface edge elements remains uncut.. ..if it was vice versa it wouldn't bother that much (maybe later in some other case it would).
It does not make a difference if I switch off the surface and draw "include" paint areas or if I leave the surface switched on, draw a complete "exclude" area over the whole surface (doesn't make much sense, just for testing purpose here) and drawing another "include" on top - same problem.
It ONLY works with surface set to "on", a paint area covering the whole surface set to "exclude" and some parts of this area erased to revert the elements.
I'm a little confused as this does not seem to make much sense to me - but probably I did something wrong (I hope)..
PS: The images have some christmas feel, needs just some red balls in the green circle..
