Trim function disabled in NX11


Anyone else try to trim curve in drafting and it no longer is allowed?  

In my job we go to the views and add basic curves to make outer profiles around a compoenent for shop processing needs, and now I can no loner use the trim command.  

First of, why remove this ability?

Second, is there a NEW command I need to find to do this?


My Biggest pet peeve/complaint with NX is the constant removal(and/or move) of commands in the massive maze of commands.

In drafting, 'Quick Trim' command will be available only when sketch is active.

A workaround might be that shown in the attached image.

They are legacy commands, try to use more 'modern' commands.

The trim curve command (the one shown by @Cesare) works in drafting for NX 9 and 10, but seems like NX 11 won't allow it. I'd suggest contacting GTAC and reporting it as a regression. They obviously made a concious decision to disallow it in NX 11, but I don't know why.
