Can't Release Compounds

Recommended Posts

I'm having general trounle releasing (apparent) compounds.  I've attached an example created in the latest beta, using expand stroke, but this happens in release too.


If I copy the element into ai I can release compounds there, but not in AD.  ids proving to be a bit of a productivity hit, so would be nice to see it fixed.


(also BTW - would be good to have key shortcuts baked in for the compounds commands)

Hi Tim,

I'm not sure i understood your question.

The boolean operations are working as expected with your file as Chris_K said.

Maybe you're expecting something like this as a result?




If that's the case a compound object will not give you this result directly, because of the way the object was built.

You have to perform some additional subtract operations to get this.
