When it comes to this feature, it is a great tool for making non-destructive cut-outs to one’s shapes.
It really helps when you looking at saving vinyl when cutting, or if you wanted to have a unique shape based around a few different ones.

All right, guys, in today's video Flexi starter, we're gonna be looking at how to compound objects. But before that, let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. Today we make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos and also we have daily updates. Otherwise, we're back on the programme here now. Yeah, this is a great little feature. If you want to make cutouts on other shapes, it's a bit like a form of merging or union and most other programmes. But this is also non destructive, so you can undo it, which is great. So let's say we want to put this comp work in the centre here and having to cut out. You could always go put it here and then change the colour to white. You know, kind of have a look of a cut out, but then when you're cutting or printing, or maybe not so much printing, but when you're cutting, it's gonna need more than one vine. It's gonna need a white on top and then, obviously, the pink at the back. But with the compound, obviously we will. We'll make it cut out of this. So, first of all, what I'm gonna do is select your both of shapes. You wanna compound? Keep in mind the shape on top cut down to the bottom. And this does not have to be text. There gonna be any shapes and self. So now we're just selected. You wanna go to our main menu on top. Now we get to arrange and we go to compound, then compound. You know, the first option you'll see it's called Control them or they control him is the shortcut for it. We click that we can see. Now it is. Let it turn this into one shape. If we move it over another shaping and see, see right through it. Just correct. Now, like I mentioned, it is non destructive, so you can always undo it. So if we click this, then we go again to arrange mm compound and then we can find at the bottom un compound Control J is it's shortcut. We click that you will see it's turned into two shapes again. But unfortunate does not remember your previous colours. I'm in the history, so you have to really change it. Uh, and then yah another way we can go about it is if you select both your shapes, you can always right click. And then from that menu, we go to the bottom here. Sorry, I'll just try that again. Could combine. And then we've got your compound. Then we'll do exactly the same thing once again. So, like the shape right click to undo it and you'll see at the bottom it says compound like that and I'll break it into multiple shapes. Otherwise, yeah, that is it On compound, this will be part of many serious maybe like two parts, maybe three parts. And then we will be covering some more features of the compound. I will also leave relevant links and description. She can actually follow him along otherwise, if we head here to softwaretraining.co.za. Today you guys will notice we have a variety of different Softwares we cover and also you can isolate Just search you on the top, right? If you do not find what you're looking for, however, you can always go to request a training video and then we will make that video for you. Otherwise, thanks, guys, for watching and cheers
