I've seen lots of topics on Breaking curves and Joining curves and I am still having trouble. I have an elongated rounded corner rectangle. I'm trying to turn it into an elongated C. I did an Expand Stroke. Then I selected a node on the outside curve, hit Break Curve. Then selected a node on the inside curve and hit Break Curve. I can now move a node so that they look to be separate, no path between the nodes. But the fill still continues between the broken nodes. Then I try to do a join and they will not join. I used the snap to get one node from the outside curve to align right over the node from the inside curve, select them both by holding shift and drawing a box around the two nodes, hit join curves. And sure enough they are still separate. I suspect the join just isn't going to work seeing as the fill continues along that they aren't truly broken. I would guess that I couldn't have fill if I had two truly open curves. Has anyone any ideas? Has anyone tried breaking a shape following an Expand Stroke?
