If a Pick Color is selected, you can only split lines that are the same color as the Pick Color.
Split Line does not split lines that are part of a polyline or polygon. To split a line that is part of a polyline or polygon you must first explode the polyline or polygon using Vector Edit Menu >  Modify > Un-Make Polylines.
