Anyone know how to add loop in mesh symmetry?

I have Mesh Symmetry on; and the mirror plane is right in the center facing either side I'm working on.

The push-pull operations are working fine – aka symmetrical.

HOWEVER -- I can't figure out why when I Add Loop to one side, it doesn't reflect on the other side.

Help please..


*using VC 10 Pro. Do NOT have power pack at the moment.

Would you happen to have a small file that has this issue that you can send me?

You should be able to add a loop with mesh symmetry.

Received, thank you for sending the example file. Unfortunately Add Loop will not add a loop to the symmetry side of the mesh. I'll add this to the feature list.
