Cut and splice lines and shapes

I would very much like to be able to create a polygon (a rectangle for example) and cut one side out of it. More generally, I’d like to be able to cut sections out of lines or shapes; and particularly out of the box/dogbone generator.

Right now I’ve been trying to find a simple way to turn a box generated by the box generator into a birdhouse with a slanted rooftop. This would be very simple and easy if I could just cut out the top side of the box and attach new lines defining the roof.

Related to this, it would be nice to be able to add single lines with “dogbone” tabs in them so as to make it easy to attach that birdhouse roof to the box.

A box with a flat top just makes a birdhouse that leaks.

As a work around that you can do now, you can “erase” parts of a shape by setting a new shape in front of it set to fill and zero depth
