I have a rectangle with a brush applied like this:
I then put some text on top of the shape like here:
I want to subtract text from that shape so that it is cut out. when I use pathfinder => subtract, it applies the brush stroke to the subtracted shape as you can see here:
I'm wondering if there's any way to remove the text WITHOUT it applying the brush stroke to the text. i just want to cut the text out of the shape.
