Insert Edge appears to snap to existing edges, but then don't

What’s the purpose of this behaviour? It appears to very nicely snap to the existing edges, but it’s apprently just an illusion. Is there a merge option in this tool that I missed?

Hi @eobet
In this case - where you want to connect to vertices, rather than inserting an edge - you’ll have to use InsertPoint instead, and select the two vertices. Or you can InsertEdge (as you did) and then Stitch the vertices afterwards.

Thanks!

Hopefully a McNeel employee will see this and throw an auto-stitch feature on the pile for Insert Edge. :slightly_smiling_face:

In such situations, use the command - InsertPoint
