    find open path?


      I have a very complex Illustator drawing that needs to be sent to a CNC router. The drawing is composed of several closed paths. The vendor says that my drawing has an "open path" somewhere which is preventing the machine from from correctly reading the file. I want to be able to fix this problem myself, however I can not visually identify an path that is broken or "open". Is there a way I can fix this problem myself? The drawings have 1000's of points and 100's of closed paths, so I can not manually check every one. Further more, I do not even see how I could possibly identify an open path where the two end points may already precisely aligned--visually there is no way to tell whether it is open or closed. I tried to do a Select All and go to Path > Join, but you need to have first selected the two open points.
