Creating a new Push/Pull starting face
Push/pull a face (click on the face, move, and then click again) and then press and release Control (Microsoft Windows) or Option (Mac OS X) (the cursor will contain a plus sign) and push/pull again. The lines that represent the edges of the top-most face will remain as the starting point for a new push/pull operation. This mechanism is useful for creating quick multilevel buildings. The following image shows a face that was pulled up (left), then the user pressed and released Ctrl (Microsoft Windows) or Option (Mac OS X)and pulled again (middle) and then the user pressed and released Ctrl (Microsoft Windows) or Option (Mac OS X) and pulled again (right).
This operation is particularly useful for creating quick space planning diagrams (such as for an office building). Simply use a combination of push/pull and push/pull with Ctrl to create offices, halls, break rooms, meeting rooms and so on (with walls created when Ctrl is pressed).
