I have this square and I want to make cut along the green lines.

enter image description here

The problem is, I try to use the knife tool (K+C) and the proper camera angling to connect the vertices and the edge, but the knife wont cut.

I want to be able to "loop divide" (line?) the face and drag a line so I can line the needed line to it's location. Or, atleast get the knife tool working properly.

How can I do this?

    $\begingroup$ This looks like a case that knife tool should support - could you provide a Blend file? $\endgroup$ – ideasman42 Mar 11 '16 at 3:42
  • $\begingroup$ To clarify, are you trying to cut four squares at the corners of the front face or cut the side faces from the back corner to the front edge? $\endgroup$ – sambler Mar 11 '16 at 11:25

Knife should work for this:

I suspect the darker face on the right is the result of a second, super-imposed face which is preventing the knife tool from working. To fix it, delete the face or use W> Remove Doubles:

That said, there might be a faster way to get the desired result, for example Subdivide and Bevel:

I also used triangulate (⎈ CtrlT) at the end; not sure if those diagonal edges were desired or not.
