I'd like to join a transparent line and a transparent filled circle together without creating an overlap region with a different transparency. How can I do this in InDesign? None of the path or pathfinder tools seem to accomplish this.
To ilustrate the problem:
Note the small overlap region (between the yellow circle and the line) which is darker colored because two transparent objects overlap. I want to avoid this type of overlap.
EDIT: from an answer below (thanks) I realize my illustration was unclear. I am talking about the overlap between two yellow objects, pointed out by the red arrow:
I would like to get rid of the darker area where the two shapes overlap (that is, not delete, but just have it be the same color as the rest). Using Pathfinder > Add, however, causes some unexpected behavior: the circle inherits the fill and stroke properties of the line, and the line disappears (it's not that it has stroke width zero, it's just gone):
How can I avoid this ugly overlap area?
