is there a way to extrude an edge ring diagonally?

This is my model, I need to extrude the edge ring keeping it's direction:

This must be simple enough, yet I couldn't find an answer for now, maybe I'm expressing myself badly in the search or something.

  • $\begingroup$ i am not sure how you created your model, but if you have a rotated cylinder you could just select it like you did and press 'E'. But looks like this does not work for you. Would you mind providing your blend file? $\endgroup$

Change your Transform Orientation to Normal.

Remember to change it back to Global for all of your regular stuff. :)
