Notes

This modifier will select additional edges that make edge loops with the selected input edge. It can be very useful to select entire edge loops and use tools like move rotate and scale on them. Also, selecting an entire edge loop and using FilletEdges can add detail. Conversely, selecting an edge loop and using Dissolve is a great way to remove detail.

The edge loop selections are topology based, so having a clean quad layout where verticies have 4 edges each is necessary to use this tool effectively.
