IS there a way to split blocks in qgis aside from the split features"

for example i want to select a polygon and have it split as required: enter image description here

is it better to have the lines in a separate layer or have the polygons themselves split ..

EDIT: what im trying to achieve is not splitting the polygon i just want the outline of being split .. that being with a line or by splitting the polygon itself doesnt make a difference

what i need to is speed the process of getting the splitting outline

  • Please define "split as required". What are the requirements? What is your end goal? A map with polygons that look like they have been split into multiple smaller ones?

  • i need to be able to select a polygon and split it for example into 8 equal parts.. then select another polygon and have it split into 10 equal parts and so on and i dont need the polygon to be split by even if another line layer appears to split the polygons if youd check the second photo i posted it would make it clearer
