I've created a rectangle, and I want to cut some text out of it, so that the text will appear as the background pattern.
I expected to be able to achieve this by selecting the rectangle and the text, using
Pathfinder > Minus Front - however this hasn't worked. I've tried searching for the solution everywhere and can't find an answer.
Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?
How do I cut out / minus / subtract text from a shape / object in Adobe Illustrator?
