    What have you tried? Why is it not working? Showing some effort to solve the issue on your own goes a long way.

  • Hi Scott, do you know how to do this? Did you downvote my question? I tried Object>Path>Divide objects below. I also tried Object>Compound Path>Make to make a compound path. One solution to my question is a function that cuts all selected lines and curves at their intersection.

    Yes I know how and yes I down voted. This question shows no effort. Simply asking for directions with basic operations is not a good question. You need to show what you have tried, where it fails and why.

    It's not the criteria.. it's the lack of effort on your part. GraphicDesign.StackExchange.com is not a "tutorial on demand" site. (FYI.. Pathfinder has the answer. The sheer laziness to not explore Pathfinder more is another example of how little effort has been put into this question.)
