    Difficulty with Pathfinder Shape Modes

    Bob Trent Level 1

      I can't fathom out why I cannot 'subtract' a path in one 'compound shape' from a path in another 'compound shape'. I'm sure it must be simple as I have managed it with other elements of the same object - I am just trying to subtract a shape on top of a lower shape so that I have a transparent background.

       

      Any tips much appreciated. I have attached the file as I imagine there are quite a few circumstances governing what will and what won't work!

       

      Thank you.

       

      Sorry - forgot to mention - ai CS4 on Mac OS X 10.5.8
