Can this very useful tool and the other Sub-D Tools be made to work with non Sub-D objects and Sub-D objects which are in the swapped state?

 

Also, because these tools are named "Subdivision _____" when the spacebar tool menu is invoked all the subdivision tools are displayed.  I noticed that "B" does bring up the Bridge Tool, but "O" doesn't bring up the Offset Face or the Offset Edge Tools etc, etc.

 

-well actually, "B" sometime brings up Bridge, sometimes not.  I haven't figured out the way I got it to show up.

+ 1   Agreed,  Sub-D tools should work at the underlying object level as well as the smoothed version!

Actually, after testing, I now realize that the Loft Tool functions exactly like the Bridge Tool!  Works on faces and segments on smooth and non-smooth objects.

But then, why the redundancy?  why not have a tool that can be overloaded to handle the multiple situations?
