Extend Lines


Hi, I am a new user.  Can I get some advice on how to extend lines to another line?  I have multiple lines in a circular window that I want to extend all at once to the frame without stretching each individually.


Along the same line, (pun intended), how can you trim multiple lines to clean up crossed lines at a corner with one click?


Thank you in advance,

One approach is to use the Connect/Combine tool, from the Basic toolset:




Note the four different Modes which will affect how the tool works (you can hover over the icons to read how each Mode functions).


Let us know how it goes.

So here's my take:

- Use the OIP to mandate that the lines extend past the circle

- Then choose the circle to Trim the lines (  T)

- Delete the lines that extend past the circle
