    How do you keep non-closed paths from merging while drawing?

      Hello, I am doing an Illustrator CS4 file, filling loose outlines with coloured areas. When I draw the coloured areas, the pen tool keeps joining them to the open ends of the loose outline paths. I have tried layers to keeps this from happening, but it still grabs the end points of the line vector on the next layer. The big gaps I want in the outline are way too large for Live Paint. Any suggestions?

      Thanks
