Splitting Objects

With the revamped Knife (Premium) tool in CorelDRAW, you can split vector objects, text, and bitmaps. You can split single objects or groups of objects along straight, freehand, or Bézier lines.

(From top to bottom) Three modes for splitting objects are available: Bézier, 2-Point Line, and Freehand.

In addition, you can create a gap between the new objects resulting from the splitting action, or you can make the new objects overlap.
