Use multiple cutters with the Trim Elements tool
Have you ever tried to use the Trim Elements tool to cut multiple elements? Can't figure it out? Well, here's a great tip from you from Bob Knepp:

Use the Element Selection or PowerSelector tool to select the cutting elements.
Select Trim Elements
You'll notice that the elements are no longer "highlighted" but that's okay.
Now all you do is click on the portion of the element you want to trim.
If the portion to trim is located between two other elements then that part will be trimmed away and if it located outside an element then that part will be trimmed away.
You do not have to un-select the elements when you are done because they are automatically dropped from the selection set.
