Joining open paths

In this exercise, we are going to discuss joining, how to join paths together. We have actually got a couple of path combos that we want to join. First, we want to take this guy, right here, the arc and the spiral and join them into a single path and then we want to take these two partial arcs and join them as well. And remember, by the way, if you are trying to click in order to select these guys, because we have to select by path outlines, you want to watch your arrow cursor and as soon as you hover over a path outline, some place that you can click, you'll get that little block next to the arrow and they will tell you, now you click and you'll get something. If you don't see the block and you click, you're not going to get anything selected because you are clicking on the stroke, not the path.
