well, the knife tool is interactive, unless you drop it, and limitations is move the whole knife tool that is projected, or change start and end point of the linear one direction cut.
Easy split as erikals refered too may be the thing, commercial plugin though.

However, the slice tool (multiply/divide) under the knife tool...will let you do more controlled redirected slicing, edge to edge, but you can not change or draw freehandly on the surface poly only to create a cut...it has to go from edge to edge.

Thanks but no, not easySplit. I've seen a knife who cut a corner box for example, and the corner disappear while the rest of the polygon rebuilds !

yes, hard to say based on the 1st post, but yep, either "EasySplit" or LW's "Slice"

(edit, ah, ok, posted at the same time)

sounds like Slice.

The Interactive knife tool you are thinking of is from 3rd powers LW Brush I believe.

LWCAD also does this if you model using any creation tool with boolean option on.
