  1. To create symmetrical shapes, normally I draw half and get the other half by duplicating and flipping it. Here is what I tried in AD Windows: I created a curve and flip symmetrically. Then I moved and sticked them together. Aftter that, I used move tool to select them and click Join curves button on the tool bar. Then, I got two problems: 1. Only one pair of overlapped nodes are merged. as showing by the attached GIF, the lower pair nodes weren't merged. There're still two sperated nodes. 2. I used Node tool to drag one of the lower node, moving it away. When I moved it back, it snapped the other node and merged into one. At last I got the one shape without extra overlapping nodes. However, the problem is when I combined the two nodes by dragging the away and back, the node handle angle changed. This means, adjusting by hand, I was almost impossible to get my perfect vertical symmetrical shape. Any help is appreciated.
  2. Is it possible to merge nodes without losing their bézier setting? The task I'm trying to do is to create a design that has some symmetrical elements. I draw one half and mirror it over. The problem I find is when I come to join pieces. There doesn't seem to be a way to get nodes to merge properly. I can snap overlap them, but that is not ideal and may cause problems later. An example would be a heart shape outline. Imagine you draw the left side then mirror it right. Joining the top right and bottom right nodes to their left counterpart loses the bézier on the right of the node. The nodes on the left side retain their bézier, on the right they become sharp. Thanks for any help, this is driving me mad. :wacko:
