### [Solved] Accurately split shapes

Posted:

**Mon May 04, 2015 8:33 pm**I would like to be able to split a shape into 2 or more smaller shapes. For example: I draw a square and I want to split it into 2 triangles along the diagonal.

I could not find a 100% accurate method to to this.

I did find the following suggestion:

draw a very thin rectangle across the diagonal --> select both shapes --> choose Modify > Shapes > Subtract --> choose Modify > Split

but this is not very accurate or handy.

Is there any other way?
