Hello guys,

 

I was wondering if it is possible to do non desctructive boolean operation and yes it is possible. My only regret is that is very hidden. Wouldn't it be possible to create a "compound" group directly in the "Layers"? Say you select several shapes and you have the option to create compound group with a default boolean operation which you can change for every object afterwards? Other thing, it is really hidden that you have to alt-click a boolean operation to make it non desctructive. Would it be possible at least to add something in the tooltip and even better indicate on the boolean operation there is more that one op? You could fore example popup a menu if you click and hold on the boolean operation.

 

Cheers,

Forget about my request. I found the "Create Compound" in the Layer menu. I just was confused because this option is not available in the popup menu of the Layers palette when you select several layers. Maybe something to add there, no?

You can shortcut editable compounds by selecting your shapes, hold down alt key (on mac) and clicking on the boolean operations bar - works a treat

Option/Alt on Mac is also Alt on Windows. Where Windows keyboards differ is that there is no Cmd () key, so Ctrl is used instead; the Windows counterpart to the Mac Ctrl keypress currently involves pressing the left and right mouse buttons simultaneously. :(
