Anyone know if there is an Illustrator plugin to cut a large number of lines at their intersections? I'd like to have it work with all objects on the layer.

I thought Graffix had one, but it only does one intersection at a time.

Thanks!

Brody.

None of the Pathfinder tools work?

for the pathfinders you might need to change the lines to narrow polygons (expand stroke)

I have had good luck using the Table Saw Tool from Graffix. I almost cut my figer off the other day though. :blink:

Actually, I hadn't even considered the Pathfinder palette. I've always just associated it with polygons. Turns out the Pathfinder tool Outline does exactly what I need it to do. Works just fine with linework.

Thanks Nick!
