Scissors tool

The Scissors tool is the mouse tool that lets you split Patterns.



After selecting it, the mouse pointer will be followed by a red bar which materializes the splitting point and moves according to the currently running Snap value. Click where you want to perform the split.


Change the snap value if you need greater freedom in locating the split bar.


You can also press 4 to select the Scissors tool.


Another way of splitting is to place the Caret at the desired splitting point with the Arrow tool and press / ctrl + E.


To split many elements at once, select the Scissors tool, then click and drag to create a marquee. All the elements intersecting the marquee's left and right side will be split.
