    Heres my problem. I need to make shapes that are on top of other shapes into negaitve space. Basicly If I made a big circle of grey, then made a small circle of white. put the white one ontop of the grey one. How do I make it into a grey doughnut, and get rid of not only the white circle but the grey underneath it.
