Deleting section of a curtain wall

Back to the curtain wall...

Does anyone know how could I break the segment of a curtain wall? Would like to get rid of the section marked with the red arrow. The whole curtain wall is a closed polygonal shape - that is how it was created a long time ago, and now I want to break this shape.

Unfortunately, the Split command does not seem to work on Curtain Walls.
So, I would create a copy of it, then modify the Reference Lines of the two instances so, in the first instance, only segments of the Reference Line BEFORE the to-be-removed segment remain, while in the second instance, only segments of the Reference Line AFTER the to-be-removed segment remain.
(The way you remove the last segment is you drag the last Node onto the next-to-last Node, then continue until all unneeded segments are removed.)

There is a special command for splitting CWs.
A bit dumb, but at least it's possible.

Unfortunately this option doesn't work very well for me.
Generally it doesn't work at all 😉

Oh - I get your workflow. I think it would work fine for me! Thank you LaszloNagy!
