Recently, I encountered the very famous problem of cropping vector graphics without rasterization. I looked over the site and this answer of Jens seems to be the best one to me. However, I noticed some issues with it.
When I crop the vector graphics using the method of Jens and export the file into .eps format, the size of the file becomes much larger in comparison to the case when I export the original vector graphics in .eps format. Is there any explanation for this?
It seems that the quality of the cropped vector graphics is reduced. Take a look at the output when I include them into a LaTeX document.
I would appreciate that if anyone introduces a good third party software for editing vector images specially cropping them.
