Can someone enlighten me and explain what the option "Clamp Crop Area to Loaded Data bounds" do?
This option is available in Vector data export and at the bottom of the Export bounds tab. It appears when you select Crop to Selected area Feature(s).

    When "Clamp Crop Area to Loaded Data Bounds" is checked, and the selected feature bounds extend outside the data bounds, the export bounds will be the intersection between the specified area feature and the data bounds. When it is not checked, the export bounds will be the bounds of the selected feature, regardless of whether or not it extends outside the data bounds.
