Although BioRender doesn't have an "erase" tool. There are other ways to remove parts of a line, shape, or icon.

To remove part of a line:

  1. Insert a line from the top bar of your canvas page

  2. Insert a shape where you would like the line to be erased/cut

  3. Change the colour of the shape to the same colour as your background

  4. Group the line and shape together

To remove part of a shape:

  1. Insert a shape from the top bar of your canvas page

  2. Insert another shape to cover the part of the original shape you would like to erase

  3. Change the colour of the shape to the same colour as your background

  4. Group both shapes together

To remove part of an icon:

To use only a certain part of an icon, you can crop the icons using the crop feature. For instructions on how to crop an icon please follow the instructions in this article: How do I crop an icon, shape, or object?
