Can't join anchor points in Illustrator


#1

Can’t join anchor points in Illustrator any idea. They are overlapping perfectly on each other but when I use “Join” command it gives me error. Thanks.

Problem solved I selected the element and then used “Unite” command from Path Finder now anchors are welded, hope some else may also find it useful :slight_smile:

Good thing you didn’t try that in photoshop. Unless I’m completely mistaken this is impossible! I remember doing quite a bit of Googling and the only thing I could find was the “combine” button which doesn’t really weld anchor points, it just groups paths…

Or does anyone have a trick up their sleeve? :slight_smile:

Cheers

Chris

yeah photoshop doesn’t include this feature, you can just create lines between open paths and combine them but not welding… :frowning:

This thing is very annoying Adobe should fix this.

I don’t think they will because some options in illustrator can have equivalents in photoshop, but obviously, such little details are what makes a product unique… Live with it!
