Clipping Paths in Photoshop CS - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

I'm using Photoshop CS with Quark 6.1 on a shiny new G5 Mac. The point - I'm working on an image of a coffee cup which needs to be cut-out, the outer path is fine and displays okay in Quark. But the path that cuts out inside the cup handle (subpath for lack of a better word) does not display as a cut out and when printed still does not work. I've tried saving the file and .EPS and also as a .TIF doent. Anyone got any tips please... Regards Richard...

    keep an eye on the path preview in your palette to check it before saving or convert to a selection to check

    If you were using InDesign you could place a PSD with a transparent background and a clipping path would be unnecessary

    Thanks, progress. I've been wondering why since using the upgrade (to 7) command-clicking on my path was no longer selecting the region with sections subtracting, as I was used to in my earlier version. I hadn't noticed that option in the options bar. Problem solved.
