Does anyone know why an object looses its symmetry? An example - Starting a head using box modeling. At the very beginning, usually right after subpatching the head. One or more points no longer associate with the other side. I also find this to happen right after I smooth shift or use bandsaw and cut. Is this a bug? or do some of these tools normally disable symmetry on the edited portion of the object?

SmoothShift has the tendency to destroy symmetry. I think it has to do with LW rounding values of making the coordinates of the positive and corresponding negative point ever so slightly different.

I'd suggest getting a free plugin that will kill the other side and remirror in one go.
