Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

Cut faces tool issue...

Hello,

First, I'm using Maya 2009. Not sure if version matters, but you'll never know.

I think I discovered my first glitch.

When I am selecting a bunch of faces, and use the cut faces tool, it works the first cut, but doesn't thereafter. In my history list, it will say, "polycut1, polycut2, " etc, but it's obviously not cutting my faces as I'm looking at the polycount. It hasn't changed.

I created a box, and did the cut faces tool, and it works fine. I decided to close Maya and reopen again. I deleted all history. I still had the same issue.

The odd thing is, if I select the faces that I want to cut, it will cut the first time. Then if I unselect the faces, then select the faces that I want to cut again...the cut faces tool works first time, and thereafter.

Is this a weird thing? It only does on this specific model, not any newly created polygons or new file.

I didn't change any settings or anything of the sort.
I have a feeling that it's just a little glitch, but what happens if it keeps happening?

Load up the default preferences. I've had stuff go all weirdo on me even though I didn't think I change anything, so one first thing I do is load up the defaults to see if its a user error.

I *just* got it, so I didn't really have anything set to my own preference.
