"Edge Slide" versus Loop-Select (Alt+RMB) and Grab (G)

I’m reading this new book on 2.6. He speaks of using the “Edge Slide” via hitting Ctrl+E. Is this the same thing as Alt+RMB loop selecting a moving via “G”/Grab?

:RocknRoll:

Try them! :wink:

Slide scales along the shape of the mesh, or maybe I should say it preserves the shape of the mesh while moving along it, grabbing moves without scaling.

I had to test that out because I wasn’t sure what you meant… until I actually did it. Wow, this could come in handy.

Thanks! :RocknRoll:
