How do you connect two DIFFERENT LINES?

How do you connect two DIFFERENT LINES?

How do you connect two DIFFERENT LINES?

I'm trying to connect two nodes - one on one line, and one on the other, I'm used to flexi-sign software, all you have to do is click on one node, hold your shift key while clicking on the other node to select both nodes at once then hit your join key and they connect, I see the icons to connect the nodes, but I can't select both at once, so they stay grayed out - what am I doing wrong???  Any help sure would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

RE: How do you connect two DIFFERENT LINES?

Hi graphicgirl,

It's rh14k to the rescue!!!!

1)select both lines

2) click on the combine icon or select combine under the menu bar selection "Arrange"

3)then pass the cursor over the node you want to connected to the other and you will see the cursor change to a black arrowhead w/ cross hairs below/right and the node is enlarged

4)grab the node and move it near the other and it will snap and combine itself to the other

How's that for an easy lesson?
