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.
