As I originally find it here acrobat shows a white background by default. You can open the pdf file in Acrobat App and click Ctrl+K and check the Show Transparency Grid But by default, browsers and Acrobat app on other PCs will show a white background.
Convert to outlines and do pathfinder > merge.
Instead of connecting the circles with a line at the bottom connect it with a rectangle: Use the unite tool:
Try the shape Builder tool, it lets you precisely combine many shapes into one in a more intuitive way. Here's a tutorial from Adobe
You can try changing your strokes to a solid and try the pathfinder tool again, specifically the first one from the left on the top row: 'Unite'.
The Pathfinder is your friend, for things like this. Starting with my two paths (rectangle and star). Make sure the object that you want to punch out is on top of the object you want to make the hole in. Open your Pathfinder (Window > Pathfinder). I like to keep mine pinned to the toolbar on the right, because it gets used a lot. Make sure that both ...
It looks like it is just space between the shapes. But if moving them closer together doesn't help, make sure that there is no "border" on the shapes and then if you right click the pencil tool you can select smooth tool just select the shapes and drag along the lines you wish to smooth. Good luck and I hope this helps!
It looks like your "rough edges" are actually because there's the smallest amount of negative space between each shape. If you select your shapes and do not have more anchor points than makes sense, this is what's going on. I would arrange your shapes so that they overlap instead of barely touch, which will knock out your whitespace. For example, in the ...
There is a simple but effective workaround for this type of problem, which I only found out later and would like to share. You can create a perfect semi-circle with the pen tool, starting from one of the endpoints of the horizontal line. You only have to mark the "top" spot of the circle, which is on the line perpendiucular to the existing horizontal line ...
The fact that the two objects are on different layers is irrelevant. I believe the effect you're looking for will be achieved by selecting both shapes, then under Object>Pathfinder>, select Add. Note: In order for the two paths to combine, they must overlap. If they do not overlap or if at least one anchor from each object does not share the same location, ...
It would definitely be easier to do in Illustrator, since there you can use Stroke, which then can be expanded to Fill. But here's how I would do this in Photoshop Notice: You'll need “Corner Editor” script by @shadowxaf Using Polygon Tool with 6 sides () create two shapes (use Shift to align it properly): Apply rounded corner to the first polygon ...
