illustrator cc pathfinder minus front function
I'd like to know what the difference is between click on the
Minus Front option in the Pathfinder palette and Alt+click.
Alt+click keeps the pathfinder operation as a compound path of both original paths. This way, you can re-edit the paths, while still seeing the Pathfinder effect.
Just click will
Expand the operation right away, discarding the original shapes in favour of the new one.
