Chapter 16. Compound Paths > How to Make Holes

How to Make Holes

If you haven’t used compound paths before, you may wonder why they’re necessary. You need a compound path whenever you want to put a hole in an object—like the middle of a bagel or the inside counters of the letter “g” after converting it to paths (see Figure 16-1; we discuss outlining fonts in Chapter 72). You also need a compound path when you want several frames on your page to act as a single frame, whether or not they’re overlapping.
