Subtracting two shapes in Sketch produces odd result


Question

I'm trying to subtract two shapes in Sketch 3.0.3. One outer oval and one inner oval, with the inner one being a partially cut out oval shape (shown in green).

This is before: enter image description here

And this is after subtracting the two shapes as selected in the sidebar: enter image description here

The result I expect is for the green shape to be subtracted. Instead the transparent part of the green shape is subtracted as well.

What am I doing wrong?

Accepted Answer

You are just missing one step after subtract, you need to flatten the form (the result of the subtraction) because unlike Illustrator Sketch treats "Pathfinder-functions" (sorry come from Illustrator ;) ) like a mask. To make them to one form Flatten them to one and you can subtract again.
