How to erase just a part of a line or wall

One common question is “How do I delete part of an existing wall so I can place a window or door in it? "

 

🪛 Quick Fix - The fastest way to add a window or door without trimming or deleting is to choose an opening from the Opening tool which will automatically cut the wall and insert the opening you've selected. 

 

If you are using the Draw tool and simply want to create a break in a line, you can follow these steps

1. Locate the existing line you want to edit.

2. Add two small intersecting lines where you want the opening.

3. Use the trim option to remove the line within the two intersecting lines

4. Then delete the intersecting lines you created
