I have drawn an image using the pen tool. They are currently individual paths, I want to merge these paths to create a single vector shape so that I can be able to select each segment individually using the white arrow tool and add a different colour to each segment.
Have tried selecting all then Object > Expand. Then Pathfinder > Merge (wont let me merge)
It only works if I add 1pt stroke. Then Object > Expand > Fill & Stroke > Ok ....then I am able to merge but this means having visible stroke paths I cant remove.
