How to Cut a shape inside objects

I’m trying to design a pie chart, so I create circles (each one in a separate layer) then I change them to something like that:

enter image description here

Now I want it to look like that:

Of course I can create a small blank circle and put it in the middle, but I want it to be transparent (logically impossible) . I tried to use the path division operation between the two switched circles and it works, but I don’t want to combine them (also they will have the same style).

I’m open to any other suggestions or alternatives.


  1. Once you have finished creating the segments in different layers. Create a circle at the center.

  2. Duplicate the circle. Now select path- division twice, selecting a circle & a segment each at a time. The resulting path looks like this image(segments are not combined retaining the assigned style intact).image 1.
