I will occasionally need to bandsaw a single polygon into equal sections, however, it is extremely rare that the 'split' will go in the correct direction. Obviously it is possible to change the direction via the numeric panel, however, this is very tedious when needing to split many unconnected polygons.

I wondered whether it would be possible to select the direction of the split by how the polygon is selected? As an example, if I have a polygon which is 1m(Y) x 1m(X) and I select the polygon by clicking on the horizontal edges, it would split across the Y axis. If I select by clicking on the vertical edges it would split across the X axis.

Another option would be to have Bandsaw work by selecting edges. You'd select the two edges to split and it would run the split between the selected edges. If there's a loop it would split along them in the current way.

Cut polygon in half? Just select two edges and press L to run Connect..

Or you can get EasySplit (http://easysplit.trueart.pl)and do any polygon cutting in Mode Line that you need in perspective view port like here
