I am modelling an airplane, and I want to cut windows into both it's front doors. Every door is a separate object.
What I tried:
I selected both doors in Object mode
I went into Edit mode
k to activate the Knife tool, then
z to enable cut-through.
I cut the window into the left door.
The result was that I had the window only in one of the doors, but I wanted it to be in both doors. The doors are exactly mirrored along the X axis.
How can I make the Knife cut two meshes ?

To cut through with the knife, press
Z after you've pressed K. It won't work if you've selected 2 objects though. You could also use the Knife Project tool for the same kind of purpose, it would allow you to cut with a circle or with the shape you want. You could also link-duplicate your object and mirror it, so that every change you'll make on an instance will also happen on another one.

I would only cut one door and then use symmetries to create the other door or use a mirror modifier.
