Not quite. The things that are clipped can be open lines or closed shapes. The things that you clip *to* can only be closed shapes. Otherwise, the operation simply makes no sense. > Unfortunately the radiating lines are not in this catagory so the > Intersect module is unable to recognise the shape. More precisely, it cannot clip a shape to a line, but it happily clips a line to a shape (using "Intersect with top" and the top object being a closed shape).
