When using quickpull, when the facet to be offset is selected, it sometimes:
1 - highlights with hash red and light yellow fill. Which provides all quickpull and TC snapping capabilities (GOOD)
2- 1 - highlights with light yellow fill. Which provides no TC snapping capabilities (BAD)

FYI - prior versions of TC never exhibited the above inconsistencies in behaviour.

The tool was changed in recent versions.
It is now a combination of the facet offset tool and quick pull.
A sort of "intelligent" feature which is supposed to detect the tool you would  likely need- usually curves or angles but not always.
When it highlights green it is in offset mode. If you need quick pull instead, move the mouse away hold the control key down and highlight the face - theoretically it should switch to push pull.
