Is there a trim command for lines/paths in Inkscape?
Example: given are two lines. After selecting both I’d like to press a button. Then both lines are elongated or shortened until they intersect. As a result I get a polygon consisting out of two lines.
It is similar to the wish found here:
There is not a single tool or command to do this in Inkscape, but you can get accurate results by using the Path Editor, Snapping, Guides, and Object to Guides.
- Duplicate the your paths
- With the 3 duplicated paths still selected, convert them to guides with Objects > Objects to Guides
- With snapping enabled, move the nodes to the guide intersections.
- join the nodes at the points to make your single shape.
