I know this sounds really simple, but I just cannot get it to work and I've googled and everything.

I have two shapes (already created). Both are on separate layers. The layer that is on top I want to subtract from the one underneath.

I am using CS6 by the way.

I need the end result to still be a vector (not rasterized).

I've tried selecting both layers and clicking subtract button but it's either disabled or doesn't do anything, and I don't have a 'combine' option in layers (which I think is CC only)

Please help Frown

Draw your first shape, then set the path to subtract in the top tool bar. Now draw the second shape (on the same layer) a minus sign should appear on the tool.
