problem with tutorial : expert advice needed please !!

Hi out there,

Recently I found a tutorial on how to make interfaces which describes a way of "carving off" bits of solid shapes by using the pen tool to make selections and then deleting the content of those selections. But it doesn't seem to work for me for two reasons. This tutorial is called "S-curve tutorial" and can be found on URL

1) first of all, my selections with the pen tool always fill up with a solid color and the tut doesn't mention that at all.

2) when I want to delete the selection to "carve" an S-curve out off the shape in the layer ( as mentioned in the tutorial ) I get the following error message : "could not complete your request because the content of the layer is not directly editable."

So this tutorial doesn't work for me for some reason I don't understand. I wondered if any genius on this forum ( of which I am sure there are a lot about ) could review this tut and tell me what the heck I am doing wrong here, I would be very grateful.

Many thanks in advance[/url]

You have your pen tool set incorrectly. If you want to select an object with a pen tool without the annoying filler, you should have this selected:
