Hi i purchased a font set which came with some ornaments and a few frames that i need to edit .

i need to remove two sections of the frame where the sort of corner banner overlaps but im stumped.

Cutting or erasing is a no go, i believe the frame might've been made using the brush tool.

Can anybody give me any ideas please?

Without knowing how this is put together, I just covered what I wanted to get rid of.

Can you please show a screenshot of your Layers panel with the disclosure arrows twirled open so we can see how this is put together?

 

Thanks,
Peter

sorry i wasnt clear because it was very late, the image is for gold foil printing so i think would need all gold lines on one layer with sections missing in the frame.

 

this is what happens when i edit a section of the frame with the knife tool or eraser

I think that selecting these 2 lines with the Direct Selection tool (A) and hitting Delete will give you the result you are looking for.

Adding 2 points to the path where you want a gap, direct select the segment inbetween and choosing Clear would have done it without Pathfinder.

I disagree.

 

At first use menu: Object --> Expand Appearance

All Pathfinder operations should then be available.

 

Sidenote:

If you're trying something else, take a hard look at the "open endpoints".
