Let's say I have 3 shapes stacked like on the picture below.
I have them grouped in the layers panel like so :
over [orange and blue] grouped together.
I grouped them that way because I want to use the green rectangle to cut its shape into the whole [orange and blue] group in order to obtain the following shape
So I select the green rectangle and the [orange and blue] group in the layers panel, use the "minus front" pathfinder operation and get this instead :
Which is not the expected result.
Trying with more examples, it seems that this operation cuts only in the bottom object the shapes of all the objects above it.
What if I want ot cut the shape of the topmost object only into a whole group lying underneath ?
Or more generally, what if I want to cut the shape of a whole group sitting on top into a whole other group lying on the bottom ?
I don't see why the pathfinder operations don't take the groupings into account.
Would be nice if someone can help here.
