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.
- Join the end anchor points of the paths creating a corner, if that's
what you want. (
Object > Path...)
- Expand the strokes to shapes then using the Direct Selection tool,
line up the sides of the shapes. (
Object > Expand...)
- 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.
