    I REALLY NEED HELP M8
    Whenever I cut a wall in two pieces, it shows a line between them both, like they're seperate, like they're supposed to be.
    But if I try to select one of the pieces it selects both.

    Also, quick question, is it possible to select one part of a wall, and then delete the selected area only?

    To make the cut you have to hit enter.
    To change what part of the selection gets removed if any rehit the clipping tool.
    The white stays and the red gets removed.

    Also, cut brushes are automatically grouped upon cutting, hit crtl+u to ungroup them so you can select them individually

    No, they're not.
    Cut brush entities are. I think

    I press enter, I'm not an idiot.
    I cut and keep both parts but they're still the same object apperiantly, even if there's a line behind them in the grid view.'

    You actually helped though.

    Brush entities stay grouped when you cut them, even if you try to un-group them. Set Hammer's selection mode to Solids (or click on the "ig" icon at the top to Ignore Groups) and you'll be able to select each brush individually.
