Hi! I am new to Illustrator. I have selected two images and am trying to perform the subtract function on both of them. I received a notification that "pathfinder effects should not be applied to groups" and the function has no effect. However, I am watching a YouTube tutorial of someone performing the subtract function on two objects arranged just as I have them: 2:58 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eYdE7w5NCQ
Attached is a screenshot of the images on which I'm attempting to perform "subtract".
Thank you! 😁
To help helpers help you, the best help would be a screenshot of what you actually have, containing (at least):
1) The objects in question shown and selected,
2) The (relevant part of the) Layers palette with the Layer expanded so the selected objects in 1) are shown.
Please use the button Insert Photos
Thank you. For some reason, my computer didn't let me do that earlier, but a screenshot is now attached.
Is the person in the video also applying the pathfinder effect? Or rather using the pathfinder panel?
Thank you for your response. The demonstrator clicks on the "pathfinder palette" and then clicks "subtract". The demonstrator clicks on "pathfinder" on the top-right of his InDesign screen. I do not have "pathfinder" at the top-right of my screen, however. Is there a setting that I should change? Thanks again. Attached above is a screenshot.
