I'm trying to handle an Illustrator compound path:
- a scanned signature on a white paper
- vectorised with the image trace panel
- as you can see in the image, the white shapes in the black mother shape needs to be subtracted from the "mother shape" which is now an compound path
- when I try to release the compound path I get the error: "can't ungroup the objects".
How can I make the white shapes transparent?
EDIT/SOLUTION: The merge function from the pathfinder did not solve the problem, it only made the white holes black. Then I just started over completely and did the trace again from the jpg, this time I made sure I selected the: "Ignore White" option checkbox. It worked perfectly. But still no idea how I need to cut out shapes from a compound path.
