I'm fairly new to Illustrator, and trying to figure out how to create an arc that doesn't have the bottom line that you get from using the
Minus Front shape mode.
For example, if I start with a circle like this:
And then either add a rectangle or just draw a simple line through it like this:
Minus Front shape mode will give me a half circle that has the diameter line from the rectangle
Divide option also gives the same results here.
Is there a simple way for me to achieve what I need? See below for a (bad) example I just drew over in paint
Also not sure if there's a big difference, but I also want to achieve this with an oval, which is where my inexperience with the pen tool comes in and makes things difficult.
