Looking to learn something new?
Need help with Pathfinder tool
In the "Using Pathfinder with Objects" lesson, when I click Merge with everything selected on the moon, it deletes everything but a couple of the moon spots, and the crescent shadow. What am I missing? Clearly I don't have the layers in the right order.

Could it be that you are trying to unite the objects rather than merge them? In the pathfinder panel, Merge is the 3rd option in the bottom row of options, while unite is the first option on the top row.
After you 'merge' everything try CTRL+SHIFT+[, as it could be an issue with your layering, and this will move the newly merged object to the back.
Merge will make everything you have selected into one object. What are you trying to do with the objects that you do have selected?
