    Probably a dumb question, but I need to clip part of a fairly large displacement (or destroy it and redo the part I want). However, a mapper friend told me a while ago clipping displacements broke one of his maps. Is this true? Or is he just dumb/had a different issue

    You mean player clips? It's completely harmless.

    It's better to fix whatever issue you have with the displacement though.

    Clipping (cutting) displacements is fine as long as you ensure both remaining parts are still quadrilaterals.

    you also might need to re-sew them and make some new sewing points, but the latter is more rare and advanced
