all I want is for these two simple shapes to be joined into one to cut as one outline shape. I have made all the strokes paths, but no combination of combine or union seems to do the trick. there is still lines in the middle. It will glue them together, but not meld them. I know this is the simplest thing, and I’ve done this kind of thing successfully 50 times, but I just don’t understand what I’m doing wrong here and why it won’t work. I don’t get how sometimes it does it beautifully and then Im trying to do something this simple and I can’t make it happen. I must be missing something so simple but I don’t know what. call me frustrated, and you will be underestimating my current angst.
