I've recently been using shit + drag on edges of an object I'm trying to model, I clicked some buttons by accident, and now when I do it the gizmo disappears and doesn't do it! It's so frustrating, I'm new to max and this method had started really well and now this !!!!!

No, I don't have edge constraints on and if you say something about faces explain how I can fix that.

Thank you for reading, hopefully you can help me.

PS it happens to completely new objects I create as well as objects I'd done it to before.

you can only shift- drag on open edges if you want to create new polys

might wanna use shift + drag rather than shit + drag.

Other than that, have you tried pressing X?

i've been grinding furniture with my bare ass for years, works fine here

few things come into mind though a) you hid the gizmo, press X b) the edge you are trying to drag is already connecting 2 faces

Didn't expect people to respond so quickly :L And so many people to ridicule my spelling mistake :L

And now when reading those comments at a reasonable hour I see my obvious annoying stupid mistake, 2 faces, was so obvious.

Sounds like my night out in New York last year.
I spent the evening at a club with a shit and a drag. (del3d and bolteon)
