  1. Hello, I've started to experiment with modelling in Houdini and have encountered some roadblocks almost immediately. That may have to do with my settings, but i'm not certain. I'd appreciate any tips if you have a moment 1) When I Ctrl + Create object (Sphere, Box, Tube etc) it creates the geometry at object level, rather than at SOP level. Thus i'm forced to create each new piece of geometry by manually putting down a node, which renders pointless the shortcuts from the pop up radial menu and the Create menu tab. 2) When I'm trying to do a Boolean operation I cannot select the second object (using the select arrow). Again, I have to create a node. 3) Boolean just won't work on my model, whcih is just a very simple bit of box modelling, here's the file https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pau6l2cnVcn3NstddBiKEbLasKjdQPjb These very simple things are very frustrating, but i am very new to Houdini so they could be straightforward oversights. Help would be hugely appreciated.
