Strange, I read that i-mode does not work in max 2011, but didn't see "and up".
I should stop read fluently=)
btw, thanks for the script.

The i-mode not works in

The i-mode not works in max2011 and up. I wrote it in the description,:

Strange, but I-mode does not work in max2011.

I will change the text, so it will be clear that I-mode does not work on max2011 and up.

Great script. I've got an error, says

- Unable to convert: undefined to type: Integer <<
-- Error occurred in miauuConnectEdgesSegm99EPM(); filename: C:\Users\Vitaly\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2012 - 64bit\enu\scripts\miauuEdgeCutter\miauuEdgeCutter_v1.mse; position: 41760; line: 185

I created a box. then I applied edit poly modifier, selected ring of edges, ran your script, enabled interactiv mode, clear and then created one loop. So far so good. But after I wanted create another loop - error occured.

3ds max 2012 64 bit, miauu edgecutter v16 , Windows 7 x64.
