I am currently tracing a piece of my artwork in CS3 and have multiple little pen tool objects that some of which are not complete paths. Consequently, I am not able to perform a compound path out of the two layers I have created and receive the message "Can't make a compound path. All objects in the compund path must be paths..... Is there a too in Illustrated that can hunt down incomplete paths in a layer?? Thank You!! Brian
I'm assuming by "incomplete path" you mean the path is not closed.
If you select all, and temporarily apply a fill and stroke to each/all ; any shapes that are not filled and do not have the stroke completely around the fill, are not closed paths....visually see which do not meet your fill/stroke colors; those are incomplete/open paths. Select those and fix them.
If unsure, make a test layer with closed and open paths and see/test the above method.
If you have many many paths, this may be too tedious.
