Trim please

Question

I know the trim tool works great for what it does but I really do miss the "command -T" menu version of the tool... couldn't it come back with a different short cut... often it is necessary to trim several lines at once... clip almost does it but I still have to select all the lines I want to cut first...

I agree. The trim tool doesn't quite cover the loss of the trim command. A new mode added to the trim tool would be an improvement, but returning the 'command-T' or other keystroke after drawing a cutting object is very efficient and would be best.

I wonder if it is possible to pull the old trim command from a VW 8.5.2 plugins folder and put it into the VW 9 Plugins, and then add it to your workspace through the work space editor. I haven't upgraded yet so I dont know.

Good Luck

Have you checked out the Split Tool? It seems like it does essentially what 'Command T' does with a line. It would be the same as 'Command T' if you could split or cut with objects other than lines. Seems like combining the split & trim tools into one tool with different modes would be a little more streamlined.

I've tried out the new split tool and don't like it as much as command T. One of the useful aspects of command T was you easily could position the "cutting line" exactly where you want it before cutting. Split doesn't have the same accuracy.

Also, if you miss the split start, you can end up splitting a wall longitudinally. Who needs that?

The split tool is too indiscriminate. With Cmd-T you can prepick all of the items you want to trim. Split will cut all of the lines you cross. Split might force you to be more careful, but it's tedious and Cmd-T is faster.
