How do I cut the path between two intersecting lines? Cutting between paths that are closed seems to be easy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPDFL_gAbW8), but how would you do it if the lines are open like in the following example?

In the example below I want to remove the line marked with a red arrow that is between two intersecting lines (each marked with a red circle)


I tried to create a difference between these two elements, but then a new (blue) line is created.

So, basically, if I manage to delete one line another line is created and I have the same problem as before.
