Yes, I can.
Probably, this is the best to do, because I think that due to the used 
wording and terms a lot of confusion occurs. I will work this out in the 
next days.

Can you in the meanwhile reply to/comment my posts:

I use "to capture an object inside a certain area" to express, that the 
position and also the size (if needed) of an object is adjusted in order 
to achieve that the object fits into the given area. I've using "to 
capture" in a figurative sense in this context.
I've switched to term "to clip", because you are telling me, that this 
is the correct term for it - see your first reply to my initial posting. 
But now I think that's not correct and thus, the used wording causes
