I'm trying to extrude a cylinder in the right direction.
But to extrude I have to move the cursor verticaly.

Same with the vertical direction.
If I wanted to extrude the cylinder in the vertical direction, say a few faces, I have to move the cursor in the horizantal direction.

  • $\begingroup$ by default the extrusion will follow the face normal, but you can press E to extrude, then Enter right away to validate, then move in the direction you want? $\endgroup$ – moonboots Nov 25 '19 at 8:36

This can happen, when you Extrude Along Normals.
To have the extrusion follow you cursor, use Extrude Region instead.
