Loop cut and slide in Blender 2.81 and 2.82 (for thruster)


In the Blender 2.81 and 2.82 you can't add more loops with the scroll wheel anymore with hitting CTRL+R or selecting the icon( :/) . But there is a workaround - In order to do it - Select the edge that suppose to get cut , right click, choose "Loop cut and slide" and then you will get the "old" functionality portrayed in the video.

All the best,


  • That is only if you use the Industry Compatible keymap! Normal Blender users can still use CTRL+R and scrolling with the mouse wheel.

    • Hi,

      I have experienced with the different keymaps following your answer. It turns out I use the "Blender" keymap scheme. Only when I switch to "Blender 2.7x" keymap I get the desired functionality back. 

      Anyway your answer shed a clue to the cause of this, so thanks !

      All the best.

    • That is really strange. I've tried it with all three Keymaps and only Industry Compatible was different in this behavior...

  • That’s funny. Ctrl + R works fine for me and I have just plain Jane blender 2.82 settings. I can scroll multiple loop cuts without issue.
