One other note - if you subtract one shape from another, for example to create a donut shape, then the result is a compound shape.
I’m pretty sure I covered that in the Pathfinder Menu tutorial as well, but I’ll check to make sure.
You did - I thought it might be helpful to mention in this context, too.
Gotcha! Good idea.
(And I wasn’t overly specific in the other tutorial about them becoming Compound Paths, so I should probably address that down the road.)
