Im a newbie to blender so this might be a simple fix.

Im trying to scale between two lines. See attached pic of cube. enter image description here

This was created by ctrl+R to add a loop cut then ctrl+B to get the line above and below. I then select the center line hit Ctrl+S to scale. Instead of scaling the line in between the two lines I scale the whole new rectangle. (see below pic)

Here is what's happening at the moment

What I want to do is scale in between the two lines. see 2d version below of what I want to achieve. enter image description here

How do I do this?

MRxx, you have proportional editing enabled. With this setting, you edit the surrounding faces as well, not just your edges. You can quick-toggle it by pressing your O key.
