    closing an open path

    jakemcm
      I have a path that, although it looks closed, is open so does not fill correctly. How do I close it?

      I'm using FW8 on OS X.

      Thanks, Jake.

      P.S. Apologies if I'm being dumb and have missed something obvious!

          Zoom in so you can clearly see the ends of the two paths you want to
          join. Use the Subselection tool to drag the ends together. You'll see a
          gentle snap when they join.

            Zoom in until you can clearly see the two points that need to be joined. Press 'A' to activate the subselection tool and select one of those points. Press 'P' to activate the pen tool and then close the path by clicking on the other point.
