Nice icons!!

Also, that tool is also able to extrude if you select a face. That has actually nothing to do with trimming, maybe it should be separated into a different tool...
Thank you.
I love that feature (face extrusion with trimming). It is like Sketchup. I agree that this feature should be a more relevant tool.

The trim/extend tool should also gain some love
I so much agree.

Thats true, it works on lines and faces. but for some reason it doesn't work on planer objects. A bit counter intuitive there.

I believe what you are describing is a trim / extend / chamfer tool, at least in AutoCAD / Revit lingo that's what it is :)
Ahaha... I'm not so original indeed... But that would be really useful I think! I like the actual behaviour of the trimex on lines better than the autocad one!

That would be also a very cool feature. Maybe when applied to a solid it should move the face in the normal direction if possible instead of extruding it? To make it most consistent throughout different objects.

Good point, I think there is also value in having both options available i.e to just extrude and or just stretch the face. So maybe having a box to check that says extrude when we click to the Trim/Extrude command to Move/Stretch the face?
