Cut, trim or divide open paths (lines)
Option to cut, trim or divide open paths (lines).
For example if "Divide objects below" worked on open paths as well.
Or if the Knife could cut open paths, and cut straight as well.
In attached example, I would have liked to cut my lines with the circle. Instead, I had to cut every single line individually in the intersection, locking the circle and using the Outline View.
Creating interesting designs, we have just as much need for trimming/cutting lines as filled objects.
Almost the same as https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/39762262
There is also a plugin solution provided by AstuteGraphics with their set of plugins, Path Intersections: https://youtu.be/SM7s0JVN5fk
It turns out RJ graffix has already made a plug-in that allows us to 'fence cut' along multiple paths. His plug ins are amazing, and i at least recommend anyone who wants this to trial some of them.

I often need to cut paths to the edge of the artboard, or within a shape – especially when making guides.
In my example I show an isometric grid that I'd like to appear in a circle.
If I mask it, the strokes will still exist inside the mask. I can't make guides from a masked object.
If I use pathfinder and outline it, I will get points along every intersection, which in the case of an isometric grid slows illustrator down immensely (and may not be appropriate in any case).
I'd like to be able to 'cut multiple paths along a key path'. Whether its a closed shape (which would crop) or an open path (ending up with multiple anchor points along a line). The anchor points would only appear where the key path intersects the others.
