Shift R not working!

Ugh, this is a really annoying problem. Shift+R is supposed to select a row, I’m doing the parachute tutorial here:

For some reason, no matter what I do I cannot get it to select a row, be it in line select mode or vertex select mode. I figure I’m doing something wrong.

See a keymap here

Alt+right mouse button selects edge loops / face loops, try that.


alt+rmb worked. thanks!
