Welcome back to Ipe - you seem to have been away for a while :-)

This now done with the "crop" attribute in the "layout" element in the presentation stylesheet.   For instance, the "presentation.isy" style sheet that comes with Ipe contains this definition:

<layout paper="800 600" origin="32 0" frame="736 528" skip="32" crop="no"/>

If you just want to change your current layout so it isn't cropped, just add crop="no" to the layout definition.   Here is a small style sheet that I use for A4 paper:

<ipestyle name="nocrop">
<layout paper="595 842" origin="0 0" frame="595 842" crop="no" />
