I created this intricate circle object that is made up of a group of objects.
I want to simply cut the circle and half but can’t seem to get what I want.
When I use the knife tool, it kind of works but it adds extra strokes to it and I don’t want.
Then tried using the pathfinder tool (minus) and I’m just I just left with the outside half- moon circle
Don’t modify the object, create a Clipping Mask instead.
- Draw a shape covering areas of the object you want to show
- Select the new shape and the intricate circle objects
- Object > Clipping Mask > Make
