I applied a boolean difference modifier to a rectangular object that removed a middle portion of it and I ended um with two parts. But now I want to select just one of the parts but both parts are selected, as they are still the same object. How can I separate them apart? Thanks in advance, Pedro

You will need to Apply the boolean modifier (it's a button in the modifier panel), then use the Spacebar menu to find the Separate operator, and choose the "By loose parts" option.
