Shapes disappear after pathfinder operation?

Recommended Posts

After using the Pathfinder / Subtract operation on two overlapping circles the result is visible until I click away or Deselect, then the resulting shape disappears and the resulting shape cannot be seen or found anywhere in the artwork. 

What is happening?

I have found a workaround - if I copy and paste the resulting shape while it is still selected, the new shape remains a part of my drawing.

EDIT:
Been playing around and found the Pathfinder sometimes works how I expect it to then sometimes unexpectedly - 
Is the layer order important here? Does the cutting shape need to be on a lower layer than the shape to be cut?

Sorry, old school terminology for a set of tools in a programme made by Adobe called Illustrator.

The 'Pathfinder' tools create shapes from the combinations of other shapes by adding, removing or intersecting those shapes.

If this is the age group of the replies in this forum then I'm gone.

I meant these tools boys, sorry -
