stretch to oblique line

I have two or more rectangles and draw a diagonal line through it.
Now I want the rectangles in a stretching action to the diagonal line so that the rectangles assume the slope of the oblique line.

I have tried with Multiply Stretch (Express Tools), but the rectangles continue straight and the rectangles are not stretched to the diagonal line.

Is this possible in acad or is there someone who has a vba or lisp tool.

Your drawings are only as good as the symbols that complete them...

Yeah, that may be possible with a lisp, but TRIM would be a quick alternative in your example. If they need to remain closed,  that only requires on more click.

I'm having trouble visualizing what you want to do.  Can you post a screenshot, or better yet a drawing showing the nature of the problem?

Here is an example, the left drawing, the initial situation and wants the rectangles in one stretch to the diagonal line as shown in the right drawing.

Not possible with one standard command in AC.
