How do I separate an edge and be able to edit the shape?

I am following this Portal gun timelapse and at 0:20 seconds he separates an edge and manages to drag the end of the UV sphere into shape. https://youtu.be/ufT4ZH9knDg?t=20

But when I do it this happens

I wonder if he really separated the edge or if he changed his mind.

He doesn’t separate the edge, he cancels that. What happens there is first he tries to move the edge, sees that he still has proportional editing on, attempts to press O to disable it, misses the key and hits P which results in that Separate menu, which he then cancels :slight_smile:

Oh, I’m still confused how he drags it out like that though, the bottom of his curved to the gun but when I grab it the bottoms just straight.

He uses different transforms: moving and rotating, with and without proportional editing.
