Tips & Tricks: Sketch extend

Hi, Have you ever found that we can extend the line by using trim entities command in sketch?

Have you ever tried?

For example on the sketch above I would like close the gap by extending the line with command “Trim Entities” instead of “Extend Entities”. Can it be done? Let’s try on it.



I use Trim to closest type of trim and click on the line and drag it to the vertical line until the colour highlight (green in this case) and release your mouse.


And the result showed as above. Have a try!
