I think my problem has a very simple solution but I couldn't find it. My join tool can trim excess parts of a path but it does not extend the paths and join them where they intersect. What am I missing?

doesn't extend

trims well


The problem is that the join tool only works when there is path data for it to connect.

enter image description here

Your ends are acting like to parallel lines | | there's no horizontal points for it to read to connect. You need a path that has some horizontal point for it to read like this |_ |

    I've been playing with the Join tool since seeing this question. It's new to me. .. what a waste of development time it is :) Select the anchors.... command-J done. No too switching. :) Nice call on the answer though :) – Scott Jan 2 '18 at 19:18
