Join tries to convert 2 open curves to one open curve by creating as short line segment as possible between the curves. Thus the joining curves A and B adds a straight piece between A and B and that line segment is the shortest possible one which connect the start or end point of A to the start or endpoint of B. You have no other control over the process than to edit the curves so that the shortest connection is the wanted connection. If you need a connection line from the 2nd node of curve A to the 3rd node of curve B, you must draw it.

You will have 3 separate curves when you are ready, but you can help them to stay together by grouping or locking them. You cannot directly draw from node to node, it doesn’t snap. You must draw approximately, then select all and drag the nodes. Have snap ON when dragging. They dont need to be connected! It is important to understand that: Your mental nodel is not the mental model of your medium. The only reason that 2D vector drawing applications allow you to join curve segments is that being able to fill arbitrary regions requires this.

There is no T shaped join in a filled region. If you are modeling your objects as lines, then there is no need to model things as one object, each line is still conceptually separate anyway. You can use groups to logically organize these. While there are cases where it would be useful to be able to model general networks. There is no need for this when drawing and the software is modeling drawing not your usecase.

Your job is to turn your model into the drawing model. So I used the complement compound The square with the circle and the intersection is missing. Just to clarify a bit, I think you mean this: Say you had a line with 3 nodes, a,b, and c, with a and c being the endpoint of the nodes.

You wish to attach another another line with two nodes d and e. You wish to connect the nodes b and e. As of right now, I can’t seem to find functionality of the program where it attaches two unrelated lines that AREN’T endpoints of each line. I think the Pen module Affinity designed assumes you are always wanting to produce an endpoint to endpoint shape. I would love to see the ability of the pen to create complex shapes that are much less dependent on endpoint snapping.

Hi Amanda, not sure if any of our regulars are familiar with Affinity, I’ve never even heard of it but it does look like something to check out.

I guess I’m going to have to plow through the workbook and online tutorials till I start to get it. Thanks everyone for your help! Windows 10 Pro, Version 21H1, Build Dell Latitude E, iHQ 2. Dell OptiPlex , i 3. Thanks for all the ideas! I’m going to do some experiments and try some of those techniques. Much obliged! Hey, I tried it, and it works great! And it’s so simple! I can’t wait to become more familiar with this program. Thanks guys!
