Boolean tools missing completely

Hi to everybody,

I'm a newbie to mesh mixer, just installed on a macbook pro, OS X 10,11: in the edit menu no way to find boolean tools, or even in others menu.

How can I fix it?

Thanks

The BooleanTools appear in the EDIT palette if exactly two objects are activated.

An active object is brighter than non active objects. You can switch activity of an object by clicking on it in the scene or in the object browser. To activate a second object hold down Shift while clicking it. This way you can also activate more than two objects. But as said you need two to do a Boolean.

For BooleanUnion and BooleanIntersection the order of activation isn't important. Instead BoolleanDifference will subtract the second activated object from the first one (A minus B gives a different result than B minus A).
