NSL WEEK 292- Adobe Illustrator “Compound Shapes”

Here’s a quick breakdown on Compound Shapes in Adobe Illustrator

Check out the video above to learn the basics.

Before this week, I thought Compound Shapes and Compound Paths were related but they only share the first name. A Compound Shape is multiple shapes combined to create 1 new shape and it is fully editable.

To make a Compound  Shape, hold down Option/Alt and click on the Pathfinder function.
