i've tried to do this lots of times but my end result is always different from the video tutorial shown
this is what i get, any idea whats happening here?
Looks like you clicked Unite instead of Minus Front.
i'm clicking minus front
i already tried that as well, even re-installing the software, didn't fix
Maybe show in a movie the exact steps you take?
Please open the group with your circle in the layers panel (click on the small arrow). Please show a screenshot.
Or ungroup the group in which the circle is located. Is there really only the circle alone as a compound path?
I am afraid you have forgotten one of the first steps: Change the fill to NONE (your circle must not have a fill colour).
thank you its working perfectly now 🙂
