    Is there a tutorial on the knife tool

    whatalotofrubbish Level 1

      Finding any help on the use of the knife tool seems to have eluded me.

      I expected it to be able to cut things, which it does in a way, but not as I expected it to do. I can find nothing of consequence on its use in the on line help, and the Adobe TV videos seem to have disapeared from my help system.

       

      I draw a rectangle and cut it in half - fine. De-select it and the parts can be moved apart. Select both halves and use the knife again to cut the rectangle into 4 quarters. Result - two shapes that can best be described as each comprising two triangles joined together, when I expected 4 rectangles.

       

      Puzzled to say the least.

       

      Any suggestions?
