I want to be able to press a shortcut, then hover over an edge, click it and then place a single edge (not an edge loop) just the same way I press Ctrl+R to place an edge loop. Also would be great if I can use the mousewheel to control how many subdivisions or edges to place like you can do with Ctrl+R. Or any way to control how many edges get placed at once.
Is there such functionality? I dont want to use the knife tool which takes so much longer to use because of the extra clicks and the inability to place multiple edges at once. I was trying to get the subdivide tool to do taht but it seems like it doesnt let me subdivide by just hovering over an edge nor can I select how many subdivisions... unless I missed something?
Any other suggestions or workarounds on doing this?
