Compound Shapes

Another improvement in Illustrator 10 is compound shapes. More sophisticated than compound paths, and easier to work with, compound shapes are created through the Pathfinder palette. Compound shapes are live—each of the objects from which the compound shape is created can still be edited and manipulated as an individual path.

Compound shapes can also be moved into Photoshop as editable clipping masks. And Photoshop’s clipping masks can be brought into Illustrator as editable compound shapes.
