How do I split an object into two/three separate shapes?

Sep 6, 2012 1:06 PM

Hi guys,

 

I'm trying to split an existing object into two or three separate shapes (please take a look at the attachment) with CS6. Want to cut it along those white pathes. Can anyone tell me to deal with this?

 

Thanks!

 

Best,

 

M

    You could take a look at the shapebuilder tool, live paint or the pathfinder panel.

    M,

     

    Or Object>Path>Divide Objects Below.

    For my part you are welcome, M.

     

    With Divide Objects Below you need to select each white path (and nothing else), then apply.
