Chapter 26. Working with Objects in InDesign > Working with Compound Paths

Working with Compound Paths

A compound path occurs when you combine more than one path or object. You can apply compound paths to objects that are layered, and different effects will be seen depending on the order of the objects, the colors, and the objects themselves. Wherever a path overlaps with another object, a hole is created (see Figure 26.21).

Figure 26.21. When two objects that overlap are made into a compound path, the top item is punched out of the other object.
