    I don't know...it seems to work OK.

    It's not the alteration i would normally do. However it is valid...

    One difference i notice is i seem to have a square blue anchor vs a yellow ball. Again though, the edges move OK.

    Re read you post...

    For positioning the move tool, remember it will auto snap on a line to one of three points whichever it's closest to - each end and the middle.

    It took a while for me to...

    Tip. for any selection, hit the key z and the window auto zooms to fit the selection - this can greatly help.

    Hi Tim.

    It is much simpler but without the cool videos you creating my description was not exact enough. :-) If this is freeware please tell me.

    I simply selected a single line and use „up to“ command to create the support you can still see. I did not select multiple lines. 

    1. select line in the right corner (that is selected in my picture)
    2. try to use „up to“ to the second line selected (on the left) to create the support triangle

    -> the object cannot be extruded to the left corner. It can be moved only before and after.

    I hope this is a little better. If not I will try to create some more pictures.

    Sometimes this does not work. So Pull the edge so far, come out of the Pull command, go back to the Pull command then pull upto the edge you want.

    'Gifcam' is freeware http://blog.bahraniapps.com/gifcam/

    Jacant , Nils

    It's a bug.

    Initially, it worked perfectly, every time, never a problem.

    Then ( through box selection, L-R all model faces ) i rotated all the model through 90 deg, positioning  as Jacants model wrt global XYZ directions, same pull again and that really messed it up !

    Then, i selected the body from S-Brow, again unsuccessful line move.

    However, if selecting the component, after orientation - all works Ok again...

    Initially ok...

    then moved part, not the owning component...

    and by moving the part by selection of the 'owning component', the line move works OK again.

    I'll report this - it's a bug for sure as i can't think of a reason for the different outcome.

    Perfect, so we are aligned that the move to the line is blocked but every other move could be done. And after some tries it works fine....

    But as I remember I did not move the object but did some rotation with the mouse. So possibly I should report my example by my own to be sure the right bug is solved...

    Reporting something needs to be shown as an obvious failure, then it's importance will get ranked... also, whether there's a simple work around.

    As Jacant has shown, drag moving close to the line / face, then using upto does work.

    Look at the move tool blue arrow, note it's pointing downwards...however even instructing a direction, dragging close is still necessary!
