How to match up the corners of 2 different lines in Adobe Illustrator?


I have two lines at different angles and I want to get a corner from each line to be in the exact same position. Here's a visual:

The general problem is that I'd like these two lines to appear perfectly flush and and joined. Maybe there is a better overall way to accomplish this.

Accepted Answer

  1. Join the end anchor points of the paths creating a corner, if that's what you want. (Object > Path...)
  2. Expand the strokes to shapes then using the Direct Selection tool, line up the sides of the shapes. (Object > Expand...)
  3. At times, setting the end caps of the strokes to rounded (in the Stroke Panel) will make the strokes appear to connect. This is not always a solution since end caps cna easily overlap other strokes.
