I have a graphic logo which is a series of overlapping shapes, where all are filled white. See below:
I want to set the white color transparent everywhere it appears in the graphic without revealing what is behind each shape. If I try with the general method of setting transparency to 0%, I see all the outlines behind each shape (which is not what I want). See below:
I want it to look like this:
I have tried Knockout groups but cannot seem to get them to work. I ideally do not want to go and individually group each overlapping shape and apply knockout groups to each as there are so many in this logo. Any idea please?
