Does anyone know how to turn off the Tangent Chain mode when selecting edges to round?



I want to round an edge that happens to be tangent to other edges, however, I don't want the round to propogate past the selected edge.



I know you could do this in previous versions of Pro. Where you could select the method of picking your edges (e.g. One-by-One, Tangent Chain, etc.) How can this be done in Wildfire?

I had trouble with this also, and would like to know the solution. Another great WF improvement :(

Select the edge you want to round. Hold the shift key and select it again, this is one-by-one. If you move off the one edge to an adjacent edge you will see tangent chain, and then loop surf if you move over a surf with shift held down. Then use RMB and select round edges





Attached is a Flash video of this function.

kvision,



Thanks so much. I knew that it had to be something to do with the new selection method. I missed the step of selecting the edge again.
