I have two overlapping shapefiles/themes with multible polygons in each. The problem is that I want to make a single shape file out of the two, but the polygons in the two files are overlapping so I need to subtract polygons from one file from the other.
I know of the 'Subtract features' but it only works with two polygons at a time (?). My shapefiles have around 500 polygons each, so it is not possible to take one at a time.
So, in other words I want to 'cut out' one shape file from another and then merge the two.
I hope this question is understandable.. :o)
