How can you do a simultaneous edge copy and slide; in the image:

enter image description here

hoe can the selected edge be duplicated and slid to the front so that I have a face with 4 vertices?

  • $\begingroup$ can you first add a loop cut, and then slide that? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Unfortunately, no. I can only add loop cuts to faces made up from an even number of vertexes. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ What I would do is delete the two problematic faces, select that edge and the one next to it, extrude, and align it with vertex snapping. Then remove doubles. Not technically what you're asking to do but it would solve the same problem $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 9, 2020 at 20:02

No problem.
Just use the Rip and Fill function

Vertex > Rip Vertices and Fill
Shortcut: Alt+V

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks; but let's say you merge vertexes by distance to the left and now one face is made out of three vertexes two to the center right and one the the left. How can you stretch out the vertex to left so that you don't have problems with modifiers? $\endgroup$
