Hi, so I want to create 7 equal segment of a circle. I used the polar grid tool to find how to split those segments, then superimposed it on a circle I created previously.
Now I want to substract the 7 lines from the circle by using pathfinder tool. I ungrouped the lines, selected both objects, then clicked on minus front, but what happened at that point is that only the 7 lines dissapear from the drawing without substracting from the circle (see image below):
then when i click on minus front
also when i tried to apply other filter such as interesect a window pops up and says: the filter produced no results. Please select two overlapping paths.
Can someone help? Thanks
there are several ways to go.
With your drawing: It seems to be only stroked paths. Pathfinder 'only' works with filled paths. Use Menu: Object --> Expand to create filled paths from your stroked paths.
After then you can use the pathfinder.
Hi @pixxxel schubser ! It worked! thank you so much!
You have to outline the stroke. Pathfinder do not work on the the Stroke. Object: Path: Outline Stroke.
I had same problem and this solved it... Thanks !
This worked perfect, thank you!
It is an old problem that popped up today.
I saw the answers that Pathfinder only works with outlined strokes.
That's true, but the Pathfinder Effect works different when you first apply an Outline Stroke effect.
I could not resist to create an example with editable strokes.
As long as you don't expand the appearance the strokes remain fully editable.
