AutoCAD, Inventor Trim Extend with "SHIFT" modifier

Today I am going to show you how to use trim-extend with one command. You might know this from AutoCAD, where “SHIFT” is pressed while in trim to get extend or vice-versa.
Same thing in Inventor, if you are doing trim and you hold down “SHIFT” while selecting sketch entities it does extent; trim-extend or extend-trim, both ways.

I suggest you try it out and for next month or so whenever you are using one of them, try the “SHIFT” modifier just to get the habit of it.

Please comment on the post if you found it useful and add your own tags just so you, and others, find it faster next time.
