Hello all,

 

I would like to connect two box corners together, much like joining paths together using anchor points.

Is there a way to connect the two corners together into a cohesive corner, using the setup in the attached images?

 

Thank you!

Are you asking how to join the two shapes into one, or how to get the corner points to coincide?  From your screenshots I'm guessing the latter, but I've been wrong once or twice.   In the View menu activate Snap to Point.

If you use the Selection Tool (black pointer) the risk is that if you are a bit off in clicking you may select the rectangle, and dragging the point will then scale the rectangle instead of moving it.
