Someone help me please!!!!! This is driving me mad. I am importing an image I have sketched on my iPad and want to cut out all the unwanted white so it becomes transparent. I first image trace the image and then expand. I then use the direct seletion tool to select the bits I want to delete. When I hit delete the white goes but it turns to a solid colour rather than deleting and leaving the unwanted section transparent. Any ideas?

Which version of Illustrator are you using?

 

Also, can you share this sample .ai file including some clear instructions that may explain your issue a bit better?
