loft guide lines

I'm a new TC16 pro user.   I'm trying to create a wing to fuselage fairing for an aircraft drawing.  I've made a loft using 4 2D profiles which produces a good approximation to what I want.    When I try to refine it by adding guidelines (3D splines)  the loft does not attach to the guidelines but behaves as if they are not there.   Is this because the guides are not attached to the 2D profiles?   They look as if they are.

I rarely get satisfactory results by lofting with guide lines. "3D Splines" is one of the few kinds of entity that work at all (maybe the only kind), but they do have to be attached to the profiles. If you haven't done so yet, then try lofting with "Use compound profile" enabled and forget the guide lines. You'll be able to edit the profiles and see the loft update itself immediately.
