Separating to Open Paths

The Scissors tool separates both open and closed paths, but the new paths it creates are always open.

  1. Select the Scissors tool.
  2. Click and drag the cursor to create a cut line, or just click to split a path at one specific point.

    Hold Shift and drag to constrain the angle of the cut line.
