    Hi all.

    Have been face palming my way through this. And highly likely am using the wrong terms here...

    I know how to create outlines with I can use pathfinder to trim.

    However I have a brush stroke, one path/line/stroke, that I want to create an outline of the brush, so I can trim against a square of colour. Am I going about this the wrong way???

    so simple, but so frustrating....

    Yeah, Illustrator isn't the most user friendly software because there are a million things you can do with it. I am learning my self and spending lots of time googling.

    Good luck.
