Story
Tagline
Vonster - Glitschka Studios - Illustrative design for logos, identity, icons, & characters.
Introduction
Von is principal of Glitschka Studios and has worked in the communication arts industry for over 24 years. His work reflects the symbiotic relationship between design and illustration. This duality of skills within his own creative arsenal, inspired him to coin the phrase and title of "illustrative designer."

In 2002, he founded Glitschka Studios, a multi-disciplinary creative firm. The studio shines as a hired creative gun for ad agencies, design firms, and in-house corporate art departments working on a diverse range of design projects.

Von also enjoys working with small business owners and start ups to create compelling identity that enables them to compete on the same visual level as multi-national corporations.

Von has written four books and speaks at local AIGA chapters and design conferences nationally on the topic of design, illustration, marketing, creativity, and the creative process.

I've created an Ai action that: Punches using Pathfinder, than creates compound path. I've attached that using Keyboard Shortcuts to F9. So I can select shapes and hit F9 and it punches and ensures it stays a compound. So the app can do it but the engineers have decided it shouldn't. It's just sloppy development because those who develop never use the app to create so they don't give a shit.

Great explanation Von! I've come across this problem too many times over the years.

I think Google makes it purposely confusing so as not to loose more data intake connects. The fact you have to delete something twice in order to delete something is inane. So thank you for the walk through.

I've always thought it happened because perhaps I created my anchors in some ill advised way. Thanks for capturing this bug though. I hope many take note causing Adobe to step into the discussion.

I should point out that you can use the "Shape Building" tool and for what ever genius reason it'll retain a compound but you have to 1. Select art. 2. Select Shape Building tool. 3. Move it over the art selected. (If you're not zoomed in good luck) All of that takes far longer than simply selecting art, and hitting one key. So yes Adobe created a new tool a few versions back but it didn't improve the work flow it bloated it. I didn't bother to show that tool because I never use it, I can't automate it like Pathfinder, hence slower work flow.
