Hi, I would have a vector which is made up of multiple ice cube vectors, and they are themselves made up of multiple paths. How can I convert this whole thing into one, simplified vector with just the outline as a path? I have included a picture in the link below for reference.

I'm not quite sure if I understand this question.

Selection is all about organizing your artwork. If multiple objects belong to one unit, group them.

 

There are several methods of selecting objects: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/selecting-objects.html

These are gradient meshes, right?

In that case you can't combine them into one.

Ok, thanks. As you can probably tell I'm just getting started with AI. I have another question that I'll put here; is there a way to select the whole artboard rather than manually finding the very edge and dragging a rectangle across the whole thing? This doesnt seem like a very accurate way to do it and I do it often to clip the edges away.

 

Thanks again for your help!
