Inkscape difference with multiple objects selected

I am trying to cut multiple holes in a rectangle but it doesn’t work. The steps I take are:

  1. create rectangle
  2. create multiple circles on top of it
  3. selects circles then rectangle, go to Path tab, then click difference

What am I missing?


You can only use the Difference operation on two objects at a time, but there is a way to work around that.

Make the circles into a compound path first. Select them all and click Path > Combine. Now select both rectangle and combined circles, then click Path > Difference
