I cannot seem to get the Edge Ring Select to work. In fact I cannot get any of these loop selects to work using the hotkeys. I checked the preferences to see if I am using the correct keys and I am.
For Edge Ring Select, it is set to use Mouse, Ctrl + Alt+ Select Mouse. I switched my mouse select to left mouse. So, in edge mode I tried to collect an edge first, place the mouse cursor over the next edge and then hit Ctrl + Alt + Select the next edge with left mouse button. Nothing happens. I then try to hit Ctrl + Alt + Select an edge before selecting an edge first to see if this would work; and it did not work.
Does anyone know what would cause a keyboard hotkey not to work if you use the combo that is in the preferences? I am using the default preferences except for a couple hotkeys I added. But, others are using these same hotkeys and have no issues.
I am using Blender 2.62.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
