FH: intersection points - Macromedia Freehand

I can't find any explanation how to get the intersection points of two lines in Freehand. And if I cut a path with the knife tool I get two points nearby, but not exactly on the original place. Thats not very exact, is it possible to suppress this behavior? thank you in advance....

    Default FH: intersection points

    I can't find any explanation how to get the intersection points of two lines in Freehand. And if I cut a path with the knife tool I get two points nearby, but not exactly on the original place. Thats not very exact, is it possible to suppress this behavior?
    thank you in advance.

    Double clicking the knife tool should bring up options--try setting the
    "width" to 0).

    Closed path can be divided with the Divide path operations, but FH doesn't
    make it easy when working with open paths. We've been asking for a better
    method for ages.

    Even when set at zero width, the Knife tool moves points apart to prevent
    them from self-healing (rejoining).

    This is slightly more precise:
    1. Zoom in to maximum magnification
    2. Place a point where you want the cut.
    3. Modify > Split.
