3d slice problem (simple)

Hello,
I'm having difficulty with 3d Slice tool.
I need to slice a box in 2 pieces - 3d triangles/prisms. When using 3d slice, the cut isn't following the diagonal of the box. The part I'm trying to slice from the box is in fact yellow prism from the 3d object - I've done that by extruding triangle - however I want to be able to do that with slicing the box as well. Maybe it's the work plane interfering somehow?

Thanks.

an I ask what options you have set on the inspection bar after selecting the slice tool,  if using slice by line then the object is sliced using the current view, to slice into the same object as the yellow one your could use the slice by 3 points.

Excellent. I've succeeded. Thanks!
