I'm supposed to have a result like the picture on the left when I click minus front but all I'm getting is like the picture on the right. Help is very much appreciated.

  • Do you have Align to Pixel Grid activated? It can sometimes cause problems like this when using Pathfinder. You should deactivate it :) There is a checkbox when you set up a New Document and you can change it afterwards in the Transform panel.

    The picture on the left is before the Minus Front button is clicked... the picture on the right is after it's been clicked. Images in the middle are overlapping multiple shapes, not one object. Looks correct to me.

Minus front cuts off everything covered by the top object. The picture on the right is how it should look.

  • as much as you're right, OP was possibly inquiring about the change in the shape, look at the top part. But I guess we'll never know for sure...
