    I'm not exactly sure what you mean. Could you possible record a GIF of the issue and post it here?

    • I'm having the same issue I believe.

      Cylinder is in place, alt-clicked to copy properties, object mode and it's selected...

      Edit Mode > CTRL - R >  Wheel up to add loop cuts > S > X > CTRL-Click vertice of front metal band to match width

      CTRL - I to select inverse,  it looks different than yours...  hit delete and the vertices we made are gone with the rest of the cylinder.  The cylinder is still listen in the scene collection, but there is no sign of it in the scene view port in solid or wireframe mode.

    • I restarted from the beginning of creation of the top metal band cylinder.  The issue was that Vertex Select was not enabled before deleting.  As long Vertex Select is enabled, the CTRL - I will not include.

      Having Edge Select enabled will cause the issue I ( and probably he had)
