2. Press the 'Join curves' button (second from the right on the Action toolbar)

3. Press the 'Close curve' button (second from the left on the Action toolbar)

I signed up to this forum just to chime in on the lack of Average tool. Unless you are working with a pixel grid, there is no way to align nodes vertically or horizontally. I cannot emphasize enough how crucial this simple function can speed up productivity. I have been using Illustrator for 18 years now and this is one of those deal-breaker features—moreso than offset paths or reflecting from a specific origin—that is holding back Illustrator vets from joining team Affinity.


For now I will continue to align points manually using x and y coordinates, but please consider adding this feature for users that need perfect alignment.

I agree this to use it as a pro, this is essential 🙂

UPDATE, just found out, if you zoom in and drop one of the points to another, the curve will connect.
