MeshTrim, keeping the part outside the cutting object only

The documentation for the MeshTrim command states that the part of the mesh inside or outside the cutting object can be kept. In my case, when I run the command only the part inside is preserved. How can I achieve the opposite?

The MeshTrim command deletes selected portions of a mesh inside or outside where they are intersected with another object.

Take a look at the documentation for the Trim command, especially step 2 under “Steps”.
I’m assuming MeshTrim follows the same scheme: when picking the object to be cut, select it on the part you want to throw away. Does this help?
