I'm using Sketch 3 to make a horizontal subtraction composed by four ovals out of a rectangle. See images:

Problem is though that the rectangle is still in "one piece". I can't simply delete the upper part half of it, something I'm used to do previously with Illustrator. Here instead I get some sort of masking between the objects. But I don't want my ovals to mask the rectangle, I want the ovals to use as a cookie cutter to cut out what I want to keep from the rectangle.

How do I go about to make a complete trimming of the rectangle using the ovals so that everything is discarded except the lower wave form object?

You can do that with Layer > Paths > Flatten.

Then you can double click either one of them, to select the individual shape.


or with the icon in the toolbar.

Can't remember if that sits there by default, but you can right-click the toolbar and go Customize toolbar
