[solved] How do you join the end points of two separate

Postby StevenD » Fri Mar 14, 2008 2:22 pm

Is there a way to join two separate paths? In other words how do I join two end points of two separate paths so I now have one path?

Before you can join the paths between two seperate objects you need to make sure both paths are a part of a single object. So perform a "union" on the two objects first. Then select the two end-nodes you would like to join, and then you can either combine the two nodes into one, or link the two nodes with a new segment.

Actually, it's really a "combine" (Path -> Combine) that needs to be done. Union will often have the wrong effect.
