Use TRIM to Extend

Let’s face it – we use the TRIM command a lot and we rarely use the EXTEND command. In fact, we use it so rarely that we tend to forget how it works. Luckily, you can use the TRIM command to extend objects.

Here’s How:

  • TR <enter><enter> (Hit <enter> twice)
  • Hold SHIFT
  • Click on the side of a line to extend that side of the line to the nearest intersecting object.
