Hello, as in the title, I struggle with the Join command a lot.

for example: in the first imageI drew 2 adjacent rectangles but as you can see in the red circle, their gradient doesnt behave the same. To fix that and make the gradient apply the same way for both of them, I tried to join them together. As seen in the second image, Join command worked with the gradient but added one extra line in the middle.

What should I do in these kind of situations?

Thank you all!

Omer, What happens if you go back to the separate paths (before joining) and then simply select both and Object>Compound Path>Make?

Didnt know the difference, now I will try to keep this in mind.

You are welcome, Omer.

 

A Compound Path has a few advantages/functions, one of them being that it can make multiple paths (including separate non adjacent ones) act like one single path.

 

I always Bookmark important thread and/or keep links to them in a text file containing a collection of suggestions.
