This question already has an answer here:


As you can see in this image, I'm trying to have the letters intersect in such a way that the C goes over the D, and behind it at the bottom. The J just cuts straight through.

I want the trim to be the same throughout, and it needs to be cut through.

The white shows there I want things trimmed through the D. How can I do this in Illustrator?

This isn't a duplicate question!

    Yes I've been trying for a while, but I actually got close to what it says on the link @GerardFalla just posted. I think that's actually the solution. – frozonesupersuit Feb 21 at 17:31
  • @GerardFalla, I can't see how the this is a duplicate of that question. To me it seems like this question is about wanting an object to be on top of another object in one part of the figure and below the same object in another part. Which isn't possible. The solution is to split one of the objects in two. – Wolff Feb 21 at 17:39
  • @Wolff could you please help me to do this? – frozonesupersuit Feb 21 at 17:59

    It seems that @GerardFalla marked as possible duplicate and the OP accepted it as a duplicate accidentally. – WELZ Feb 21 at 19:14
