Structure, Slide

Slide tool (v9) and workaround (v8): select edges, then structure/Edge-to-spline/point mode select point, move with snap 3D enabled, check spline and move point along spline - Big Help! Can go back (especially if use snap to point or could duplicate object and choose structure/slide. Can slide along edge of duplicate object with snap to edge checked (guide stays and can move point later, unlike slide which only works with the new edges)). Slide edge along between two edges, Structure menu, CTRL key can get rid of two points when drag edge onto another (with CTRL key) watch out for triangles if that is a problem). Summary: Slide can slide over edges but when you let go, the edges change and you lose guide.
