Hi

The Slice tool is for “slicing” one image into several when exporting for web graphics so that each can be optimized as needed, i.e., one area might be a jpeg, another a gif, and another a png. This is not the tool you are looking for.

As Ray said, try Scissors “C”. Sharing space with it is the Knife and Eraser, which can also be useful.

Yep, scissors were the tool I was looking for.

Thank's Monika, Ray and Jane-e!
