I'm trying to convert a Eclipse Draw2D Figure to a PowerPoint page by implementing
Please have a look at
org.apache.poi.sl.draw.SLGraphics - I might remove the PPGraphics2D class in the not so far future.
A) I think it's not such an big issue, I've did some rudimentary clipping in Graphics2d context for JasperReports
B) maybe via opening a feature request ;)
C) The workaround is to extend SLGraphics (preferably) or PPGraphics2D, but you basically would need to include the clipping in all drawing calls, i.e. clip all shapes.
