Re: cutting a shape out of the middle of another

If you send the stacked shapes to cut, you will see that the smaller one will be cut out of the larger one. If you select both shapes (Ctrl+A) and join, (Ctrl+J), they should appear as they will look after cut, like a frame. I suspect that you did not select both shapes before trying the Join.

Subject: [MTC_Tuts] cutting a shape out of the middle of another

 

Help, I seem to have forgotten how to cut a shape out of the middle of another one. I put a square on the mat and added a smaller one to the center of the larger one and thought all I had to do was hit join but that did not work. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

Cheryll G.
