    Default Keep Modifier Stack After Boolean Operation

    After performing a boolean operation on an object, I lose all previous modifiers in the stack. Is there a way to preserve these before using the boolean operation?

    Thanks!

    The modifier stack is still all there, it just doesn't look like it. Once you've created your boolean, look at the options for it in the modify panel. There's a section called Operands that contains the source objects for your boolean. If you select one of those obejcts, it's modifier stack history appears under the Boolean operand. You can even add more modifiers to the source object after you've created the boolean. Just click on the modifier you want your new modifier to appear above, and add the new modifier.

    Thanks for great info. I thought all was lost once you performed the boolean operation.
