I'm working through the PE Movies and at Design Slash/Spread. I had this problem yesterday and again today. I can draw the line from the dart but then when I click on Intersect and then the line, the line does not shorten to the bottom edge line. Instead, sometimes, two left clicks later outside the object in a blank part of the screen the drawn line shortens within the pattern. I checked the Help manual on Intersect. I was having this problem yesterday and spent some trying the Intersect function on a rectangle with a construction point at the top line and drawing a line as per the above video. Instead of cutting at the bottom line some times, if I try again the line will shorten within the rectangle or sometimes it will extend beyond the bottom line of the rectangle. As per the video I have not selected the line (turned it red) before doing the function. As that wasn't working I tried selecting the line and then did the function as per the video but nothing happened.
I'm using a desktop with Windows 7 64 bit all current upgrades installed and loads of RAM and a Logitech mouse

<p>Minutes later and I've moved on to the next video and found that there was an additional click needed - on the destination line as well as the line to be cut.</p><p> This is the slash and Pivot - but when I follow that the bit that supposed to pivot just disappears. Tried this several times now and opened and closed the program and tried again - still disappears leaving the bit of the skirt pattern that wasn't selected.</p>
