Learn about new joining options for groups.
- [Instructor] This is a little bit of an interesting…feature, and it's the ability to join paths even if they're…in groups and compound paths.…This is a very quick, rough example to show you where…that might be used, although of course there are several…places where you could use it.…For example, you've done a tracing of half of an object…that you want to flip a mirror and join the paths up.…That could work just as well.…And it saves you ungrouping the object and doing a load…of other operations on the side.…
So probably best that I just demonstrate it here.…So I've got a text object, which just happens to be this…capital letter I, just in Times and that's what I'm using…just here.…And I'm going to convert that to outlines using this…shortcut Shift+Cmd+O, that will be Shift+Ctrl+O on the PC.…And that gives me a group.…If you look at the top of the properties panel,…this is where it now identifies where things are…in the absence of a control strip.…And I'm going to hold down the Alt or Option key…and then shift-drag a copy across, like so.…
