I am trying to use Pathfinder
shape modes to cut out parts of shape and overlay them on each other (as shown in following figure)
However, I am getting shape overlapping with border of background shape (see arrow in figure). For now, I am manually resizing overlay so that background borders are visible. However, this process is highly inefficient once shape become more complex. Is there way to properly achieve this so that I can use
shape mode from Pathfinder and still able to see background border properly?
