I would like to create a vector icon with a transparent shape inside it, like in this image below:
So everything should be transparent except of course the dark grey area...
How Do I do that?
Below is a link to my AI file if you want it:
Release the clipping mask on the book looking part. Use the path finder to Minus Front.
Thank you Mike.
I did as you say, but for some reason it does this (see image)
With just the book icon selected, release clipping mask. Select both items, Minus Front.
Is that what you did? What Illy version?
this is what I get, green rectangle was placed behind to see the "hole."
Thank you Mike. Played around a bit and I got it to work. What I did wrong was that I selected the square box around the book to create a clipping mask, and not the path of the book. Appreciate your help a lot!
