Best way to "split" a shape using OG Pro Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I would like to find the best way to split a shape into two objects. The two scenarios that I need to do are:

- Take a formatted shape and "break" it apart to show an item as broken/incomplete/in-progress

- Split a complicated object into two regions so I can fill/format part of independently

Currently I'm doing this by duplicating the object, and overlaying it with two rectangles and using Edit > Shapes > Intersect Shapes. It works, but it's a lot of manual work (duplicating shapes, lining up the rectangles, etc).

Since the functionality of splitting a shape already exists, wouldn't it be trivial to supporting drawing a line between two magnets on the shape and choosing a function like Edit > Shapes > Split Shape at Line? Does this already exist, and I'm making it too complicated?
Splitting or slicing a shape (ala Illustrator) isn't possible at the moment, however it's something that has been requested in the past, I'd recommend sending in official feedback to so your vote in this matter can get logged correctly.
