In this step, Anne from Graphic Design How To will show you how compound paths work and what they are. Compound paths are a way of taking several paths and forcing Illustrator to see them as one path. Compound paths are useful for creating clipping masks, spreading effects across multiple layers, and creating SVG files for die cutting machines like Cricut and Silhouette. Anne will also discuss the differences between compound paths and grouping, and how to use compound paths for text.
