The Trim and Extend commands are two of the most commonly used functions in AutoCAD. They save us time and allow us to modify our objects automatically. These invaluable tools have been updated in AutoCAD 2021 with a “quick” mode.

Quick Trim and Quick Extend are very intuitive and allow us to either (a) quickly delete portions of lines that intersect with other lines or (b) extend our lines to intersect with other lines. Every line is considered a “cutting plane” when using these quick modes, and we have several options that allow us to customize how we trim and extend our objects.

AutoCAD 2021 introduces new improvements to the Trim and Extend functions. For more information, please contact us at
