If I make a 3D extrusion from the shape and then the selection tool, everything works fine. If I try it with the pen tool and the selection tool my shape gets punched out of the backround in the 3D extrusion. what am I doing wrong.
It sounds like you might have the path operations set to Subtract Front Shape and/or the selection tool set to subtract.
If you set the path to Combine Shapes does that make a difference?
