    Create non compound shapes in Illustrator CS6


      I need to convert an autotrace shape into a pattern i can use in cad. The problem is part of it is a compound path which will not work.


      In cs3 i would have just used pathfinder used minus front expanded and had a final path, but now i just get another compound path. Saw the tip on pressing the alt key but still get a compund path.


      Please help as Illustrator seems to have tooka step backwards.
