I'm trying to wrap my head around how paths and selection boxes work in illustrator.
I created a half-ellipse using the ellipsis tool in a layer on top of another circle. The left part of this half-ellipse is showing the circle underneath it but the circle is hidden on the right side of the half-ellipse. Here is an image of what I am describing.
I want to show the circle on the right side of the half-ellipse but the selection box is preventing that. How can I either remove the selection box or close the path so the circle shows up on the right side of the half-ellipse?
Bonus: How can I hide the circle on the left side of the half-ellipse (opposite of what is in this picture)?
Here is a link to the .ai file: Link to File
Thanks for any help you can offer!
