Is there a way to merge a drawing even if it is made up of non-closed pathways. I can use the merge in Window > Pathfinder > Merge, but that only seems to work for closed pathway objects, and not if I use the line or arc tool for instance. I have tried creating anchor points on the intersects, but that doesn't work. Thanks
At least one way is to select the overlapping paths, Pathfinder>Divide, and restore the stroke if desired.
