First time on this site, so apologies if this information is on here somewhere.
I have an .SVG with a large object that I have 'cut holes' in with the Exclusion tool (Ctrl+^) and now I want to start cutting up the object into chunks, however when I use the Division tool (Ctrl+/) to cut the object some of the 'holes' are randomly filled... and new objects are created them.
It's hard to explain, but imagine I cut a hole in the shape of the letter 'a' and when I use division on the object (not even anywhere near the 'a') the hole is filled back in, and an object in the same shape as the 'a' I made now sits behind the object here the hole once was. I understand I could just use Exclusion again to just cut the 'a' hole again, but the hole that's naturally apart of the 'a' shape is filled (like a ring that is now a solid circle.)
This occurs to a random amount of holes on my object, and I want to cut it up multiple times. So if there is anyway I can cut my object without the tedium of setting it back up again, I'd appreciate it!
