Question: It is very inconvenient to select cutting edge when using the TRIM EXTEND command autocad. Is there any shortcut to select trim edge?
Answer: In autocad+2012, we offer two shortcuts in these two commands. First, you can enter TRIM command or ECTEND command, and continuously press the space key twice without selecting any objects, then you will enter into the quick cut/extend mode. Under this mode, what you need to do is only to directly click the graphic element that you want to trim/extend, and the autocad+2012 will automatically trim/extend it to the edge that closest to the graphic element. An example is shown in the pictures below.
e.g. 1 quickly cut a graphics
It requires to quickly cut the right part that separated by the line .
Start quick cut mode, click what is shown in picture Q15-2, and cutting edge will be finished.
As shown in the picture, extend the four short straight lines to meet the long straight line.
After entering EXTEND command, click the press key twice to start the quick extend mode, and directly click the four short straight lines. Please notice that when selecting, you only need to select the end that you want two extend, or it will extend to the other end.
