Key for extruding surface?

On this page it notes:

" Press and hold Ctrl during move, scale or rotate to Extrude a planar curve or surface."

However, this just repositions the gumball for me.

Has this changed and/or is there a way to reset to defaults?


the unfortunately rather counterintuitiv trick is to press the ctrl or cmd for mac key after you started moving the object.

also in case you are using V7 you should have little balls here marked black which you can use to extrude into the direction the balls are indicated, here only along z since its a closed curve.

you reset the gumball by clicking on the white circle and choose.

Thank you. Could swear I was doing that… but it’s working.
