Loop and Edge selecting faces

Hey guys! First post here :slight_smile: Loving Blender, finally, after having moved away from Wings 3D (although I still love it for what it is). Just wondered if I’d maybe stumbled across a bug, in that if I press ALT+Select on a Face, it selects a loop. If I press CTRL+ALT+Select on a face, it selects a loop. However, from that point onwards, I can only select rings, not loops, regardless of which keyboard modifiers are held. Anyone else getting this? Downloaded Blender 2.66.1 this morning so I guess it’s the most recent one. Cheers in advance for any help!

Not me.
SHow some screenshots and attach your blend file.

Alt or Alt+Ctrl while selecting a face will select loops either way. With edges Alt while selecting will select loops and Alt+Ctrl while selecting will select rings. In your case I don’t know what is happening. Stuck button? Sticky key assignment?

Hey guys - sorry I realised I’d derped shortly after posting this. I was trying to use the same modifiers for face selection as edge, when in fact I just needed to use only ALT and can determine if it’s a ring or a loop based on which edge I’m nearest to when I select. Wasn’t abundantly clear, but I couldn’t tell you I’d figured out what I was doing wrong until my post was approved :slight_smile: Thanks anyway!
