Hello!

 

I ´d like to ask you, I created the pattern, I would like to have separated objects and background via compound path. Usually I crop the pattern or  a I use only make a clipping mask, so I don´t have an experience with this type of process.

I followed this tutorial: Object>Expand Deselect all Select>Object>Clipping Mask DeleteSelect all Object>Flatten Transparency>Accept default settings (this will eliminate unwanted groups)Object>Compound Path>Make

The problem is that after applying clipping mask, showed me the message that it is too complex, I applied it, and the whole pattern was destroyed, there was maybe just one part visible and changed also a color.

Could you, please, advise me, how to make it properly? Thank you.

Maybe some pictures would make clear what you mean.

Do you want a pattern without background?

Hello, no, I ´ d like to have the all objects merged together and the background separated, because now there is a lot of paths. So there should be only 2 sections.

I am enclosing the pattern.

Thank you.

Please do not attach images, use the Insert Photos button.

Do you use the Object > Pattern > Make funtion in Illustrator?

You can skip the background and add it later as a separate fill below the pattern in the appearance panel.
