Joining endpoints


    The Join command connects the endpoints of an open path to create a closed path or joins the endpoints of two open paths.

    If you join two coincident endpoints (endpoints on top of each other), they are replaced with a single anchor point. If you join two noncoincident endpoints, a path is drawn between the two points.

To join two endpoints:

  1. Use the direct-selection tool  the direct-selection tool to select the endpoints. (See Selecting objects.) If the endpoints are coincident (on top of each other), drag a marquee through both endpoints to select them.
  2. Choose Object > Path > Join. A line is drawn, joining the two endpoints.
  3. If the endpoints are coincident, select the Corner option (the default) or the Smooth option to specify the type of join you want.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Drag a marquee through the coincident anchor points to select them (left), and choose the Join command (right).
