Do Clipping

Hey, I just downloaded blender 2.57 today and after learning some of the basics I watched a tutorial on modelling a character. The tutorial said to use a mirror modifier on a cube that has been cut in half and then to join the two together by selecting the ‘Do Clipping’ button so that you can’t break the one away from the other. But I can’t find this button anywhere, please help :frowning:

There should be a “clipping” checkbox with the mirror modifier…

Note that “Merge” actually causes the vertices to, well, “merge” into a single vertex when they meet at the same spot along the mirror axis. “Clipping” forces all vertices to stop at the mirror axis (they can’t cross the mirror line, in other words).
