And now the dialog properly says 'Keep Both', which is good.

Thanks again.

Thanks for this info!

I downloaded the latest version from the MM website a number of days ago & installed... this is the version I got.

Of course, who could possibly understand the logic of having a version called 3.3 but having the 'About' dialog show 10.10.170?  Or the 'Check for Updates' telling me I was using the latest version?

I re-downloaded MM again and installed and this time I got 3.3.15 in the 'About' dialog... so I'm assuming now I have the latest version.

Thanks again.

So you are still at MM 2.9 ( = 10.10.170)?
Current version is 3.3. Any reasons why you stick to that outdated version?
There are tons of improvements since 2.9.
Please try current MM.

Thanks for the info!

I am using Win7 64/MM 10.10.170.

Ahhh... I see now.  Since my dialog didn't show the '(Keep Both)' text and also because the lower half of the object was still shown in ghosted/x-ray shading... it was visually implied that the lower half of the object was NOT going to be kept.  I never clicked 'Accept', so I never saw that it was actually going to be kept.  Now I see that it works as desired.

(I would like to see that slice plane grid displayed in a color other than gray so it is more distinguishable from the gray world grid).

Thanks again.

Thanks for this info!  That aligns just fine.

My vote for the wishlist would be the option of the world axis displayed (along with the red origin sphere).

Thanks again.

The red sphere IS the origin where world's x,y and z is equal zero. The grid instead is drawn in the region (local frame) where your object is. So if your object isn't centred at the origin the grid appears in some offset.

Use EDIT/Align (Source = BasePoint and Destination = WorldOrigin/Y-up) to center your object (in X and Z) at the origin

Not your mistake! That's the right tool.

In your MM version (which version? which OS?) the explanations in brackets as shown in MM manual (see:http://www.mmmanual.com/plane-cut/) are missing.
Anyhow "Slice" should do the job - doesn't it after accepting the tool?

I'm not seeing those options in Plane Cut.  Am I using the wrong tool?

Thanks!

Here is an image showing an imported OBJ file in MM that may convey the world origin confusion.  You can see the red dot is not in the center of the grid.

(When the object was imported initially, it was not in line with the world axis in any way... I aligned it and rotated it to try to get it in line with the world axis).

Thanks!
