Subtraction in solids

In this video at 14:30 the presenter shows how he makes a copy of the solid, adjusts it and then subtracts the one from the other. All looks straight forward.

However, some time ago when I did this, I had a popup come up when I did not read, I only checked the box and closed it. Doing so changed things and now I am always left with the solid that I want to remove. I end up having to delete the main (makes a copy some how) and delete the solid I want to subtract.

Here is my result...

My question is, where do I turn that popup back on, in some way get back to having it work as shown in this video?

Thank you,

Steve

I thought it should be based on the session, but this happened months ago and has remained.

Have you checked "Preferences" and/or "Defaults" ?

Does this happen with all Plans or just with a particular Plan ?

I looked into Preferences and Defaults and cannot find anything related. Not sure what to really look for either.

It happens on all plans in X13 - new plan and old

 

I just went back to X12 and tested and that gives me the popup

      When I set the roof structure thickness to 7.25, the roofs are still generated at 3.5

      I have run into this and left it, but I know it used to set back to the main wall. Is there another setting I need to use for a garage door?

      Does anyone know how to turn glass into a solid so that in Line Drawing camera mode you cannot see thru it?
      There are Louvers as a Window Type, but the material seems to be glass and yet you cannot see through the louver panels, only the gaps.
      Now and then I like to use a window as a panel for under a window, but when I show my model in Line Drawing you can see thru it.
      Thoughts?
