One of my favorite tools in Fireworks is what I'd employ here. Select the two paths, and ensure they're touching. Now go to Modify > Combine Paths > Join.
Thanks for your reply, Joey.
I am familiar with the join tool. However, it tends to create gaps when the path is filled. Should I assume that there is no way to take two points and make them one, like "welding" in most 3D apps?
I've found it!
I did a couple of things:
1. I aligned the two points on the touching edge of both paths using Align and turning on "Anchors: Apply to selected anchors and control points" (the middle button when anchors is turned on)
2. I selected both paths and used Modify>Combine Paths>Union.
This actually made each pair of points into 1 point (at top and bottom)
If this sounds confusing to anyone, just imagine trying to combine two halves of the outline of a rectangle to form a close rectangle.
The Join (Ctrl+J) combines two paths into one object with two paths while union combines the the two paths into one path. Now when the object is filled there are no gaps.
