Is there a way to crop homescreen widgets?
I use Nova launcher. I am on a moto X inches btw. I'm not tied strongly t move launcher.
Basically, I want to crop widgets like the Google keep widget (u only need quick keep text not the list picture etc) and other widgets. Is there a launcher or a way to do this? I can resize them, but I'd like to crop them

As far as I know, no launchers currently on the Play Store offer control over how widgets adapt to being resized. Launchers can do things like scaling and rotating of items on the homescreen (Lightning Launcher does this, for example) but I do not believe they can control the layout within an individual AppWidget:
The behavior of an app widget is published by an "app widget provider." An "app widget host" is a component that can contain app widgets (such as the home screen).Ambassador Guides, Tips, and How-To's — Table of Contents
Softbricking be damned.

Thanks for your response!
I'm somewhat surprised there is no way to crop apps, given the amount of customization available on the Android platform. Hopefully someone eventually figures it out.
