I am attempting to intersect a set of lines with a set of polygons. I only want to keep the full line features and where they intersect with a polygon. The lines that don't cross a polygon can be discarded. When I attempt to do this ArcGIS just returns portions of the line and rarely the full line feature where they cross. I feel like I am missing something simple. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

A picture would help.

But also try switching up the order when doing the intersection.

http://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/tool-reference/analysis/how-intersect-analysis-works.htm shows a link when you mix polyline and polygon inputs.  You will only get the common element in any event
