I am trying to subtract a rectangle from a triangle. While the process does seem to complete successfully, the result is not exactly what I expected. I know other users have had similar issues but I couldn't find any that corresponds to my problem. From the image, I need to be able to select only the remaining trapezoid, but If I try to, The whole triangle gets selected. To help you resolve my issue, I will write the exact steps I took:
- Create a polygon using polygon tool [Properties set to 'Shape' and 'New layer']
- Select rectangle tool [Properties set to 'Shape' and 'Subtract Front Shape']
- Create the rectangle
- Use Direct Selection Tool to select the remaining trapezoid
I am relatively new to Photoshop, so I apologize in advance for making any beginner mistakes or not understanding how specific tools work.
