Chapter 30. Creating and Modifying Paths... > Working with Compound Paths

Working with Compound Paths

A compound path is the shape created when two or more objects are selected to create one continuous object. The most common reason to create a compound path is when you want to punch one shape out of another shape it is overlapping (see Figure 30.4). To create a compound path, select the objects with which you want to create the path and then choose Object, Compound Paths, Make.
