Hello! I am having an issue with merging shapes. The two shapes are simple, and don't have as many points as the result. So when I go to merge them in pathfinder, it results in multiple new points around the curved edges instead of bezier curves. Would love to know what I'm doing wrong here! Thank you.

Here's before and after:

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. In addition to the questions asked by Kurt, would you mind sharing version of OS as well? Does it happen with this file only?
We'd appreciate if you can share a small video of your workflow so that we can understand your issue better and help you out. Looking forward to your response. 

 

Regards,

Ashutosh
