Extract Polyline seCtion

You can go nuts with polylines and make a variation of shapes. Sometimes you need a part of it to create a new shape. With 'Extract Polyline seCtion' you can specify which part you need by picking two points on the polyline you selected. Once you've picked both points a new polyline is created between the picked points following the selected polyline. When you have selected a closed polyline it's of course the question which part of it is used. It's very easy to determine though. Before you pick the points you select the polyline; simply select the polyline in the section you want. After you picked the two points a new polyline is drawn following the selected polyline; it will follow that section where you selected the polyline.
