Cut/Trim multiple rectangles at once

Question

Please check video attached. I am trying to cut/trim multiple rectangles that extend over a line ... but I need to do it in one click, not rectangle by rectangle as I am doing in the video.

Is it possible? Seams easy to do... but... 


Thanks.

You can use the much neglected Trim command from the Modify Menu. Two clicks and you're done!

 

The Split tool in the Basic Tool Palette will also do what you need without the need for the line.

Helpful, but still I have to select the parts that have been trimmed... if I have a complex trim with many trimmed lines it would be hard to select them. 

Is there a way to remove also the trimmed parts?

 

Thanks!

Split tools not good, for now TRIM alone is working almost as I needed. I hoped there was a TRIM ALL command that trims all selected objects.

CLIP tool does not cut-off the line, it always create a close rectangle. I tried 😞

Why does the split tool not work? Seems to work fine for me.

@Biscontin 

Try the Split tool again.  I agree with @markdd and @Ride .

 

 

Try the Line Trim (3rd) mode with the Split selected option. It leaves the split objects open.  They can be closed in the OIP if desired.

 

Anyway, this seems to be what you are describing.
