There must be a way to do this. I have line art illustrations. I need to export as an svg but combine all my various pen tool lines into one contineous line so the whole illustration can be animated in simple CSS. (ie filled with a color) This isn't a converstion question so much as a how to combine all the lines into the one line.
Here's an example of one of the drawings. This is a png but that's not important.
You want this to be just 1 line? That's not possible.
There cannot be Y-connections (with 3 path segments joining)
asuming "line" means "object", you can do that. Select all of the shapes and use Pathfinder > Unite.
As Monika says, you can't have this shape as a single line, but you could convert it to one conncected object or even a compound path.
Yeah. I was hoping for a magic bullet. Pathfinder can't do what I'd like. I'm just going to redraw as I need to. Thank you kindly.
I was having a lot of the same issues and I fixed it by selecting all the elements and selecting object>flatten transparancy.
Hope this helps.
Thank you I'll try it
