    select part of shape(s)I

      Imagine a rectangle shape in Flash. In Flash I can then use the lasso tool to drag around a portion of that rectangle. The part you drag around then becomes selected and you can drag this selected shape away from the rectangle. Dividing the rectangle into two. Can this be done in Illustrator too? It has a lasso tool but only anchor points get selected. I can not e.g. drag a circle inside the rectangle shape and drag this selected circle shape away from the rectangle.

       

      I can use pathfinder, but this doesn't devide shapes like this.
