Give both shapes a fill color, and remove the strokes. If it’s like AI, the joining happens with filled shapes.
I’ll try that as well.
Well, I finally figured out what I was doing wrong in this case. I convinced myself that the curve was a “stroke” and not an “object”, so I was select stroke to path instead of object to path. if you create a closed curve, and then a box, select both, then select object to path, then union…it all just works.
Well, the good news is…you do tend to remember the ones that you struggle for.
Sounds like you figured it out, but yeah your bottom rectangle was janky – it was two nested boxes in the same path, yielding a “donut” shape, of sorts. Gave the correct result, but that wasn’t what you wanted.
Like @jules said, setting fill to a color and turning stroke off showed the issue right away.
I figured something was amiss when I selected the rectangle and it had 19 nodes.
A straight 90 degree sharp corner rectangle path should have 4 nodes, a curved radius corner rectangle should have 8. You definitely did a stroke to path on that rectangle at some point.
I redrew the rectangle, deleted yours. Joined the nodes in the heart halves, and unioned, no problem.
