Help selecting a Boolean operation [SOLVED]

Postby seans_potato_biz » Mon Oct 02, 2017 8:45 pm

In the below screenshot, there's a bitmap image of a circle cut into eight sections. I'd like to cut my black circle into eight similar sections with spacing between them. What is the correct operation to achieve this? Thanks.

Thanks but how do I convert to filled outlines? Is that different from converting to paths? If I convert to paths and then combine, the centre circle becomes hollow/unfilled so I guess that converting to filled outlines is different to converting to paths?

There are 2 conversions im the path menu and you need the second one: Convert Contour to Path - alt+cmd+C
