Cutting a segment of a line, stroke or shape in Figma can be done quickly and easily. To start, you will need to select the object you want to cut.

This can be done by clicking on the objects, or by dragging and selecting multiple objects at once. Once the desired object is selected, click on the path that you want to cut. It’s important to note that you should not click on the points of the path; instead, select the entire path.

Once you have made your selection, use either the ‘Cut’ tool or ‘Divide’ tool from the ‘Edit’ drop-down menu in Figma. The Cut tool will split the entire selection into two parts at your chosen point, while Divide will split all selected paths into segments at each intersection point. You can then adjust which segments are included in each part of the selection with a few clicks.

When using either of these tools, it’s important to note that existing styles such as fill color and stroke width will stay intact on both sides of the split selection. If needed however, you can adjust these settings after applying the cut or divide command by selecting one of the newly created segments and going to their style panel.

When cutting lines and shapes in Figma, it’s also possible to convert straight lines into curves with a few clicks. To do this simply select ‘Convert Lines Into Curves’ from Figma’s Edit menu before performing your cut or divide command. This feature allows users to create more visually interesting shapes and line designs quickly and easily.

In conclusion, cutting segments of lines, strokes or shapes in Figma is an easy process that requires only a few simple steps. Using either the Cut or Divide tools from Figma’s Edit menu allows users to quickly segment any selection into different parts while keeping existing styles intact on both sides of the split selection. Additionally, users can also convert straight lines into curves before cutting for even more creative possibilities within their designs!
