    save early, save often.

    Jokes aside, i find myself using the merge tool in pathfinder more and more these days. i used to stay away from it as i liked to keep things easily editable, but if you are finished the design and want something flat to deliver, it works a treat.

      Yo do I have a treat for you. Hold down OPT when you click pathfinders merge button. It will make those shapes into a compound path while still allowing you to edit and move those shapes separately. Game changer.
