FS#1983 - Trim All or Bulk Break out

This is a trim method I am missing in Qcad.

20 years ago it existed in CadKey.
You had a bunch of lines or segments.
You defined a (new) line or segment as cutter.
‘Trim All’.
You pointed at the side of the cutter entity to trim all intersecting at that side.

Pritty the same as in this topic:

Only in rare cases I can use Husky’s workaround as pro.
It all depends on what else is in the clipping rectangle that is needed to trim all intended.
If of no use all single crossing entities have to be chosen one by one.

Thinking out loud:

The action would take two entry options:

The selected Entities.
All that cross the boundary. (what is the next entry)

The action would then take a boundary by pointing and clicking:

A geometric open or closed Entity is selected.

At this point specific options for Break or Trim/Clip are presented.

Clipping with an open boundary: the action would then request a side.
With preview: Clipping the designated crossers.
Breaking with an open boundary: the action would then request to confirm.
Breaking the designated crossers.

With a closed boundary the action would then request to confirm.
The action would be similar as Clip2Rectangle on the designated crossers.

Thinking loud off.
