AutoCAD’s “new” trim command

So, you’ve just upgraded to the shiny new AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT, thinking this is great, new version going to have some new features etc.

But to your dismay your TRIM command doesn’t work as you are used to. It automatically cuts to the next object without asking where you want to cut!

Have no fear this is easily solvable. If you generally trim to the next object, this has now saved you a load of mouse clicks and you can get the cutting edges part back by using the new option CuttingEdges.

If you hate the new mode then you can revert to the existing by typing TRIMEXTENDMODE and setting it to 0.
