Existing model suddenly will not permit new/additional lines

skp now uploaded … thx!

I don’t know what I may have done, but I cannot connect to planes with a line with either pencil or rectangle tools to extend the plane. In copy-moving a set of windows without noticing I had pressed “K”, I seem tScoping-Hamilton-v1.skp (3.2 MB)
o have lost a back wall and now cannot re-draw the plane.

Any help welcome…an intermediate novice here so would really appreciate any advice/solution ideas.


Upload your SKP file so we can see what you’ve got going on.

You deleted a piece of an edge.

You should learn about and use groups, components and layers. And watching tutorials for beginners will help you draw correctly and easier. Keep the white faces visible outward, and the blue (back face) ones inside.

Thx…I got lazy and cheated as I have a deadline with too much on my plate, needing only an external visual … but, have not been able to add anything at all to this file–even on a separate structure that is just fine. It seems that once an edge is broken, the whole file is unworkable.

As @mihai.s has shown, and now me, if you are unable to draw in this edge and get the faces back then you must have some other problem.
Also, Don’t double post this same question to another thread again, it only confuses things and is against forum rules.
