Hi Webcat,

This looks like it might be down to file If possible could you provide the file in question for this?

Thanks

It looks as though you’re trying to ‘Add’ a short curve to bridge a gap in a larger one. You need to use the ‘Join Curves’ and ‘Close Curve’ commands for this.

I guess I don't understand why I would break it, when I want it closed? But I will try it though

You can add open* or closed curves, but you can only join curves if they’re open (because you’re joining the free ends, and a closed curve doesn’t have free ends).

 

*If any of the selected curves are open, the app will close them before adding them.

Thanks for trying to explain that for me. I kinda see what you mean, but I will have to play around with more scenarios to see if it all works and makes sense.

There aren’t really that many scenarios to consider. ‘Join’ joins the (ends of) curves, and ‘Add’ adds shapes together.

@>|< @Alfred was trying to explain the "basis" of the functions to me, not just the particular subject I started the post about. But yea, I've copied everything "as you said" so it's cool. Over and out!
