How do I join two path lines?

Hello,
I am using a pen/tablet and while using the freehand tool I often
need to join two lines to create one path. I have used the point selection tool on both lines but can’t seem to join them successfully.
How do I join them so that I can color fill them as on path?

Thanks,
Garcia

Ok, I figured it out. My problem was that I was selecting multiple points and the Join option wasn’t showing. The thing to do is once I have the two points connected, select only the connected points and… voila! I can now join them using the Object > Path> Join option.

I am having a blast using Intaglio. Overall its an easy application to use and I am getting excellent results.

Thanks,
Garcia

This is embarrassing!

I’ve had this trouble w/Illustrator and now Intaglio, which I just purchased and really like :slight_smile:

I make two separate lines and join them together at a point using the Point Selection Tool and I go to:
Object>Paths>Unite and I get the message:
Can’t complete this command.
This operation produces and empty path.

I’ve even tried shift-clicking both lines to make sure they are selected.

This is such a basic operation you’d think it’d be on p.1 of the manual but the answer seems to evade me.

Any ideas?

As 2 paths means 2 objects try to Object>Paths>Combine them first. If you drag one point onto another select both and go for Object>Paths>Average and then: Object>Paths>Join. Otherwise Intaglio will try to establish a new segment in between.

Awesome!!!

Thank you, I see that actually selecting the path turns the end of the line into clear squares. To actually select the ends of the line you must click on them and they turn to black squares.

Shift +click allows multi-selection.

It’s not the most intuitive method, probably the same as Illustrator which I tried during a trial month, but w/a program this complex, it’s good to know.

Thanks Frank, you saved my a lot of searching :slight_smile:
