what about trapping?

 

thanks for the quick response!

 

also, [sorry for all this, but i was searching the forums yesterday to no avail] is there a paste-in-front / paste-in-back command that i'm missing?

 

is there a hide command?

 

How do i break up a compound path into its constituent pieces?

By default Designer pastes in front of the selected layer/object. You can use the icons in the Insert Target section on the Persona Toolbar (on the top right of the interface) to also paste inside and behind the selection and on top of other objects for the selected layer.

 

Not sure what do you mean with a hide command. If you are referring to layer visibility untick the checkbox on the object/layer you want to hide in the Layers panel.

 

To break a compound path go to menu Layer ▸ Geometry ▸ Divide

In illustrator, any object i select, i can tap cmd+3 and it will hide the object; cumbersome to have to do that through a layers panel; the hide command also has a related feature: hide all except selected, which is a sort of isolation mode, i suppose.

does the default paste [in-front] behavior you reference above paste the selected object in the exact same x-y axes position? I should have clarified in my question; it's not just about the position regarding above or below and object, but Paste in Front / Back also puts the object in the same x/y position. Does that makes sense?

any update on overprint preview? and is there a separation preview? I use these features daily in illustrator and am looking to make the switch.
