    What method did you use in blender to create or control edge loops?

    You can use bandsaw with split edge turned off to see which polygon loops will be cut before actually cutting them. You can also use the select loop tool.

    If Fi's Jigsaw still works in 9.2 you can select a poly loop and run Fi's Jigsaw and interactively move the cut. I like it better then bandsaw.

    Bandsaw-pro does it interactively as well.

    I meant "drag mouse in viewport" style interactive, not using sliders, but for more precision and multi cuts bandsawpro is better.

    You can use "select loop" in modeler for polygons, points and edges but first you must select TWO of them so that LW know what direction you want to go.
