In Form.Z 6.7.5 it was easily possible to extend a single segment to a surface.

Now in Form.Z 8.6.2 I am not able to find a corresponding tool.

Any hints…?

Did you try the Extend or the Extend Segment To tools?

The Extend To tool will extend a segment to a surface.  The operative word here being Segment and it needs to intersect with the plane of the surface.  If you could provide an image of what you are trying to do it would help the answers  :)

In addition to the segments of a surfaces or the segments of the faces of an object, the Extend tool also operate on segments of a Vector Line, but not on a Line... for Line(s) you need to use the tool Extend Segment To in the Edit palette, but it's much more restrictive if you are operating in 3D space, it only works if some conditions are met.
