Intersecting

NOTE: The newer Eraser tool is usually easier and faster than the intersect method. 

Intersecting lines are lines that cross each other. You can split lines where they intersect via the Intersect button. 

You can intersect multiple lines. 

To split multiple intersecting lines:
  1. Select two or more lines to be intersected.
  2. Choose Line | Intersect.
  3. Select and delete any unwanted line segments to achieve the desired shape.

You can intersect one line at the points where other lines intersect it. For example, if you select a straight line crossing a circle the Intersect command will divide the straight line into 3 parts, the circle line being unaffected.

To split one line that crosses another shape:
  1. Select the line you want to divide into segments.
  2. Choose Line | Intersect.
  3. Delete any unwanted line segments to achieve the desired shape.
