I'm trying to use compound shapes in Illustrator CS4 as described in the help pages. I can select and move individual components of the shape, but when I try to change the shape mode of a selected component I get a popup with the message "The filter produced no results. Please select two intersecting paths." I'm running Illustrator as a 30 day trial, but as far as I know this function should still work.
Hi Tim, When you want to change one object compound shape attributes, use the Alt key (option on Mac) when clicking the pathfinder button.
That works fine. Thanks!
