Pathfinder Incorrect Work
I have a problem with Pathfinder in new Illustrator version 24 (2020) (macOS 10.15.1). Please look at the image attached. Pathfinder doesn't cut a compound shape out of a path or another compound shape. It merges the two instead.
It worked fine in the previous version of Illustrator.
We have fixed this bug in our latest release – 24.1.2 which is available worldwide now.
You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html
Thank you for the feedback.
i have the same issue ffs
I am having the same issue with Pathfinder Unite and Minus Front.
I have a similar bug in Illustrator 24, Win 10.
Previous function: combining multiple compound shapes (unite or minus front) used to work. It still does function correctly in Illustrator 23, however in the recent update it appears to only work if shapes are all grouped instead.
I've attached a set of steps to reproduce this bug as well as how to work around it. The Illustrator 23 label shows my previous work flow and how it breaks in Illustrator 24. My workaround only works for one or two compound pathfinder shape modes.
I am having the same problem running on windows. I have ilusstrator cs5 installed as well which I have to use to correctly minus with pathfinder. Another option is to expand the shape you are minusing but then that doesnt allow for edits.
I'm having the same kind of problem/s. I'm using the Windows version.
