Final Notes | The Scissor Tool

・The Scissor Tool works only with vector shapes, not images.
・The Scissor Tool does not work with grouped or masked objects.
・The Scissor Tool allows you to cut the segments of your combined shapes by tapping on the border of your shape. To move the cut shape, you have to separate it (By using the Separate button in the Path Tab).

Note – We recommend to use the Scissor Tool to edit open Paths, and the Eraser Tool to slice closed shapes.
