    Hey I am trying to knockout letters on a private parking sign. I have a green background and need to combine "private parking" to the green background because my plotter will not recognize it when i try to send it. please help

    Look at the wireframe, that is what the plotter will see. Just cut it and pull the letters out.

    how about this one. When I import a logo off an eps or pdf it has a red line around it as if in bitmaps. I cant get at the logo itself. how do i get rid of the red line around it holding it in?

    Select the background and the letters. Hit CTRL+M. That will do what you're trying to do.

    Or do it the hard way. Select them both, go to EFFECTS - COMBINE - CUT OUT.

    So, basically what you are talking about is a reverse weed ... simple, as others have said, make a shape type has to be smaller than the shape, combine (ctrl+m) done. weed out the letters.
