Set the Edit Bar options. You can either split blocks that are already selected or select blocks to split by pressing Select.  This will run the Select Window tool. Once the block(s) to be split have been selected you should right mouse click to exit this mode.  Then draw the split lines by picking the start point and the end point of each line. The split lines will be displayed as they are drawn. When you have added all the split lines required press Split and any selected blocks will be split along the drawn split lines.
