When I select add and then cylinder, cube or whatever, then I can't see the cube on my collection side menu on the right.


I want to do some booleans from the air intake seen in screenshot 2. That's why I need to be able to select the cube and the object I'm modeling. But if I can't select the cube, I can't do it that way.

Air intake to model

To make individual objects exit edit mode and add the new objects in object mode.
