Join Paths in Pitstop

Post by john.scott » Thu Jul 29, 2021 3:02 pm

Hi, I'm looking for a way to join any open paths around a cutter guide so that I can use the 'clip bleed around contour' action to produce visuals. The cutter guides are currently separate lines. The 'close path' action does not seem to work.

Hi John
Could you please post a simple test file before and after.
Easier to see if there is a way to help.

The paths you want to close have to be selected, then you can try 'Close Paths' or 'Close Gaps in Contours'.

I've seen issues where the paths have a mask or are a compound path. You need to get rid of the mask and release the compound path first in order for it to work. Also only the paths that need joining should be selected.

As Malcolm said, if you can share it that would help.
