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…

Nope…

Nope.

Too simple.

Too straight forward.

Don’t like it sick

Thanks!

That worked.

Don’t know why I never thought to try that raspberry

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.
