i am trying to divide an object:

in Edit Mode, i select "Loop Cut". But the selection is only possible in that way that it divides the object in half. I didn´t found a solution to change the selection. If i wont another selection, i have to repeat that step.

But that is ok, i can live with that.

My question is, when i selected the region with the "Loop Cut", how can i process the cut? Found no possibility. The region where it would cut is shown but i can´t execute it. (I know, this is a rudimentary question...)

I am showing you on a cube.
If you are loop cutting from exact center, that is Ctrl + R and Right Clicking mouse button to exit sliding.
In Edit Mode: Go to face select mode. enter image description here

and select the faces on the other half. enter image description here

Now press P and seperate by Selection. enter image description here

Go to Object Mode(by pressing Tab)and select any half of cube and Press G to Grab and move. enter image description here

This same method works on Blender 2.79 too.

Now cube is divided into two different parts! Enjoy.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you Yash. I knew, it is something very simple (and i already did it several times before) but i swear, i didn´t found the answer to simply press "P" to divide the pieces.... $\endgroup$ – Coliban Feb 8 '19 at 7:49
