Hi

 

I use often rectangle or polyline tool with "insert through entire object" option activated for joined solid objects. Now joined objects tend to separate after operation. I'd like to see the option to re-join derived objects automatically. So it would be faster to continue sculpting.

Hi AC, 

 

This behavior is to be expected with objects that are joined together.  The Join tool is designed as an organizational/convenience technique and it's generally not a good idea to Join two objects together to be used as one object for alter operations--this is an operation for the Union tool.  The issue is that Joined objects would likely have overlapping/intersecting geometry (which is problem geometry) and the formZ toolset would have to include overlapping geometry for all operations, which it currently does not.
