I am brand new Illustrator CS5 user. I drew this image using the pen tool in Photoshop, and then I exported the paths from Photoshop into Illustrator.
I have a picture that looks like this, currently. The things I want to change are circled in red. They are the jagged protrustion on the two flag tags, and the overlaping lines.
I want it to look like this (edited using eraser in Photoshop):
How do I get from point A to point B in Illustrator? I've tried various solutions without success.
Your advice is very much appreciated!!
The flag edge with the zig zag should be a closed path with a fill, and each of the tags should be a continuous single path reaching or going underneath the flag edge (you may close them).
The pole should be beneath the flag edge and the tags.
You may see the stacking order in the Layers palette/panel.
I hope this is enough: three quarters after midnight here, time to attend to other duties.
thank you very much for your response! Unfortunately, the image/paths are all on just one layer. I used the pen tool in Photoshop to draw this, and then exported the Photoshop paths into Illustrator and stroked the lines...
You can use the Shape Builder tool to delete the unwanted portions of intersecting paths. For example, AltDrag the ShapeBuilder tool across the two sides of the flagpole inside the ribbon. See online help about using the Shape Builder tool.
