I'm attempting to use the split tool to divide a vector shapefile into two parts. I used a process that I've been successful with before:
Go to Edit > Split > Select my feature to split > Draw a line that goes all the way through the feature (past two edges) > then either click "finish" or double click to close my line
For some reason when I went through this process just now it split the feature along my line but then immediately erased the smaller polygon. Has anyone else had this problem and/or know how to fix it?
