Q - question

How to trim multiple lines at an edge with one command?

A - answer Instead of the TRIM command, use the "Cookie cutter" Express Tool - the EXTRIM command. Select the trimming object (polyline, circle, etc.) and side to trim (inside/outside). The trimming object will be used as a fence to select/cut the lines.

You can use EXTRIM e.g. to make a detail of a part of your drawing.

If AutoCAD reports EXTRIM as an unknown command, make sure you have Express Tools installed.
