Edges should not be smooth when using Push/Pull

As you can see from this animated GIF, when I Push/Pull the border, I get a smooth edge. I want a distinct edge. How do I make that happen?

You have the softening angle between normals set high enough to soften that edge. Select all of the geometry and set the Soften slide back to something closer to 20°.


It’s also the main difference between the Circle tool and the Polygon tool, a circle is really just a polygon with smoothed edges.
See here how I set both to 8 sides and one shows hard the other soft.

Thank you very much Dave. I now have my edges set at 38 degrees with the Smooth Normals box checked.
