Split faces with multiple closed curves

I've been trying to recall this tip for several months now and owe a handful of people some info on it. I finally asked the right people so I'm putting it out here for posterity...

The Split Line feature only allows face splitting with a single closed curve. This can be extremely frustrating if you want to split with a pattern of closed curves.

An alternate technique is the use the Insert > Feature > Wrap with the "Scribe" option. This allows a sketch with many closed, non-intersecting curves to split a face.

Hope you find this useful!!
