All of the pencil lead is in the waste and all of the pencil line must be removed to make space for the tail. So, you cut to remove the pencil line.
SORRY!! All of the pencil line is in the pin that you are creating, so all of the pencil line *REMAINS.* Leave the line! When the work is in my hands, I see what to do, but just typing, it can be confusing.
I wish the edit button hadn’t been removed.
