Hello all! I am NEW to Adobe Illustrator--- no pro here! I am trying to make a color wheel and color segments.  I have used tutorials to make what I have posted, but when I divide the product via pathfinder tool, only some of the segments are correct, while some are in groups of three.  Please see images as posted.  How do I fix this?

Just use the shapebuilder tool or live paint instead of the pathfinder.

Unfortunately a lot of the people on youtube still haven't discovered these functions after 15 years ...

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. In addition to the suggestion given by Monika, I'd request checking out help articles below:

1. Shape Builder Tool

2. Live Paint

Hope these help.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh
