    Been waiting a long time for this!!  Thank you @lana !

    I like how it seems robust in handling partial intersections and extending, etc.  Here is a doc with a couple of common types that I have suggestions/questions about. 

    Studio 1 - A) Could Mutual Trim do the enclose when a solid is created?
    Studio 2 - B) Could Mutual Trim give option for saving different selections?  (Like the Split - Delete part work steps where Mutual Split 1 did not give option for this)
    Studio 2 - C) Mutual Trim 2 is another example where saving different options would help (Like choosing one or both of the newly split cylinder faces)

    Thank you for your testing and feedback. 
    Studio 1 - A) Could Mutual Trim do the enclose when a solid is created?
    Totally possible, some of the early testers felt that keeping it as a surface is less surprising. I can make it an explicit option.
    Studio 2 - B Could Mutual Trim give option for saving different selections?  (Like the Split - Delete part work steps where Mutual Split 1 did not give option for this)
     If I understand this correctly you would like a mutual split with extension. That, counterintuitively, is harder for us to implement than what mutual trim does. If you look into Mutual Trim code, you'll see that it is easier to implement for split face.
    Studio 2 - C) Mutual Trim 2 is another example where saving different options would help (Like choosing one or both of the newly split cylinder faces)
    You've found a bug there - thank you :)
