  1. Hello all, So I have done a some tinkering and then some searching and then some reading. I am trying to get down to the bottom of a few issues I am having that are different from my past life in working with Illustrator. So.... I am working with text right now. I have taken the text and converted it to curves. 'O' is one of the letters and I am trying to isolate the inner linework and the outer linework as separate paths. In illustrator, this 'O' would typically behave as a compound path, but instead I found out that I have to use geometry divide in AD. Is this correct or am I missing something. No biggie now that figured it out, but curious. The bigger issue I am having right now is with using the pen tool and snapping. So I have this letter 'O' which has been broken down into separate paths. I have the O linework selected as snapping candidates. I would like to create new linework using the pen tool that begins and/or ends directly on the intersection with the 'O' linework. I plan on then removing certain linework from the 'O' and then joining the curves of the pen tool with it to create a new object. The only problem is that I cannot for the life of me get snapping to work with the pen tool and the 'O'. I expected that the pen tool would snap to the outline of the 'O' when it is within a certain distance (like with illustrator), but it does not behave this way. I can only snap to essentially the midpoints, but nowhere else. What am I missing here? Thanks
