Subtract shape not working

no idea why, but I can’t seem to be able to use the subtract path function. I am modifying from an existing font but I don’t think it makes a difference. Any idea what’s the problem here?

The two paths have different directions. That is not supported. Reverse the direction of the small piece.

Thanks Georg, but it’s not working even if they are in same direction.

It works for me as expected in Version 2.6.5 (1296). How exactly are you doing it?

  1. Select the shape you want to subtract:


  1. Click the Subtract button:


@mekkablue I did it the same way as you did. Actually I could subtract if both of my shapes are drawn by myself, but I couldn’t subtract from this existing Google font.

Convert the path to cubic (Postscript) curves and it will work.

@George_Thomas Thank you! problem solved.
