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.

You can also automate erasing objects in the neighborhood by using the TrimOuter utility - see www.cadstudio.cz/download.
