How to join two open endpoints?
I keep getting this error message even though the endpoints do not have this: "To join, you must select two open endpoints. If they are not the same path, they cannot be on text paths nor inside graphs, and if both of them are grouped, they must be in the same group."
I've ungrouped everything.
I've tried using the pen tool to manually join.
I've moved the endpoint, then tried joining them.
I've tried command+J.
Same message everytime.
And if I use the Pathfinder, I'll get unwanted results (i.e. a new path going right though the art)
What's going on!?
While uploading an AI file is unsorted, you may consider at least one option:
One is that you have at least one hidden extra Anchor Point, either on one of the paths or as stray or belonging to a third path.
You may find out by:
1) Using the Direct Selection Tool to click, not drag over, both end Anchor Point and then Cmd+J, and/or
2) Using the Direct Selection Tool to click, not drag over, each end Anchor Point by itself and then move it a bit.
