    Can someone please tell me the new way of doing this if their is one? Is their an alternative to the Minus Front feature now?

    Thank you,

    Minus Back, (still in the Pathfinder palette), works the same way...just need to arrange your objects so that your 'punch' shape is rearmost.

    Regan:

    The people at Adobe have a contest every time they introduce a new version, to see who can come up with the most unnecessary name change, just to make life more interesting...

    The tool you're looking for is now called "Subtract from Shape Area", and it's right next to the "Add to Shape Area" button.
