Fatal error
Everytime I try to select a certain an edge on one of the objects in my scene, Maya gets a "fatal error" and closes.

Every other object works fine. It's just one which cause Maya to crash if I try selecting a loop.

This might be relevant:
I had a relatively flat object, which I duplicated and moved a bit to the left. I bridged faces from each object to the middle to connect them, and then combined the two.
I then merged the vertices to actually make it one object.

That leaves me with a loop down the center, which is the one I'm trying to delete.

dont know what could be the cause but since its a fairly easy object. throw it away and reconstruct it.

deleting the history is always a good point to start getting problems solve, too.

Well I tried selecting the edge loop 'manually', but when I try deleting it, it says I can't delete border edges.

so there are now two ways dealing with it.
1. merge vertices... this time really
2. if the error still occurs upload the file. ill take a look

I got it. :o

I forgot to delete the faces inside the object which were the center of the edge loop I was trying to delete.

I deleted those, and now it's letting me delete the edge.

Thanks for your help though.
