Bulk Break out

Hello, everyone!
I'm looking for a command / scripted way to apply 'Break out segment' to a group of lines. Here's a helping picture.

My situation

What I'm trying to achieve is getting the same result as if I was applying (D, 2) to all those lines, using the vertical line as guiding intersection. I'd like to apply this to the whole group, avoiding clicking on each line. Actually, the best case would be removing everything on the left of that vertical line, but I could do that using selection after applying (D, 2). I have no problems with doing it by means of a script, if necessary.

Thank you in advance,
Bye!

Yes, that is a very helpful tool but unfortunately only available in the QCAD Pro Version. It's called "Clip to rectangle" and works like your "Wishlist"

It comes with three options:
Clip to Area,
Clear Area,
or
Cut at Area Boundary

Ok, so scripting it will be, I guess! :twisted:
