Going Loopy

Here's one I have been meaning to ask for a very long time.

I'm having trouble with the Loop command.

The first screen shot is my starting point.

The second is what happens when I use the Loop command.

That's nice if I want to loop in that direction, but I wanted to go perpendicular to that. So I tried Ring, and nothing happened.

How, if it's even possible at all, do I get a loop around the cone instead of along it (I hope that's clear - I want to loop a circle on the cone at just that height, not go up and down).

I tried "Shift Clicking" the loopy command, and even "Control Clicking" and "Command Clicking" {yes - I'm on a mac right now, but have a PC too if it only works with that}.

Any help would be appreciated. This crops up periodically, and me no likey! I really hope there a simple command I am overlooking...

    Shift click one more poly in the direction you want. Then hit loop ;)

    Nope...

    Nope.

    Too simple.

    Too straight forward.

    Don't like it :sick:

    ...

    I mean...

    Thanks!

    That worked.

    Don't know why I never thought to try that :P

    I know, right?
    Sock must work with shades on!
    Pink is definitely one of my favorite colors, though.

    That's my special Screen Shot color scheme.

    I have quite a few saved up, each more obnoxious than the others.

    That's so freakin' cool, Sockratease!
    Something I've not messed with - but this sure is inspiring.
    I like it more and more the more I look at it! :)
