Hi all, does anyone know how to remove the white areas I've used to block out the lines behind? Is there a quick fix to this? I've tried multiple ways of using the pathfinder and shape modes to create a single line drawing but nothing is working. Help?
Thanks in advance.
Are the strokes expanded?
It that case select all but the background and click on "Merge" in the Pathfiner panel. Afterwards make sure you delete all the white objects and all invisible (unfilled/unstroked) objects that might have been created by Merge
Hi Thanks for responding! Ok figured it out, it's a lot more complicated and need to create multiple layers to retain the whiteouts before finally merging into one shape and it creates a lot of unwanted ghost shapes that really need to be cleaned up, but worked out in the end. Thanks for your help!
You're welcome. Selecting the unwanted objects is quite easy:
draw any object and assign no fill/no stroke
Select > Same > Stroke and fill
Repeat for white objects
HI, no they were ghost shapes. So I did use select same fill colour to Hide all of the artwork, then I was able to select all ghost objects and delete them together.
