Compound Path fill rules

Jun 20, 2012 7:58 AM

I rarely want my Compound Paths to have voids where overlapping takes place, but sometimes (and it seems random) I get voids anyway.

 

The Attribute Panel options don't seem to do anything.

Am I stuck having to apply Pathfinder effects to solve this?

    I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve. Can you please show three states of your object/s: before, after, and the desired result that you are not getting.

     

    this link explains how the different fill rules work http://www.fireworkszone.com/tuts/476/fill_rules.pdf

    If you just make your stroke a little thinner you will see what is happening.

     

    If you just show the complete project, someone might find different ways to achieve what you want. I don't understand what you're trying to do with that shape, masking things ...
