    punch

    Level 7
      Hi,
      I have drawn a rectangle and some text.
      I have converted the text to paths, selected both and tried to punch the
      text through the rectangle.
      I get the error message that two paths are needed.
      I assumed I had two.
      Any help appreciated :)
      thanks

          After you have converted your text to paths you need to ungroup it, then to
          avoid punching one letter at a time, select all the text and > Modify >
          Combine Paths > Union.

          Now you have two paths, select both and punch.
