im trying to make that shape with the interior empty but keeping the round corner when i use pathfinder (minus front)the shape i wishit make the hole but round corner disappearsresult with no round corner

Anyone can help me on that one? Please, and tks


Depending on your version of Illustrator, you may need to go to "Object > Expand Appearance" before applying the Pathfinder.

Alternatively once the path is expanded you can go to "Object > Compound Path > Make" rather than Pathfinder.

  • I answered the same, so I'll just comment here, for additional info...: >>You make the rounded rectangle a REAL rounded rectangle, not just a rectangle with rounded EFFECTS. In that case, use any of the ones below on the rounded rectangle: 1)MENU Object> Expand Appearance 2)MENU Object> Flatten Transparency Taddaa! Mar 19 '15 at 20:13
