How do I join branching paths? I have tried the 'Join Tool' and 'Direct Selection Tool'. This seems to only work for 2 paths/endpoints?
This is what I am trying to achieve:
What method can be used to join 3 endpoints for a branching path?
In the final step I would also like to make the origin/stem stroke to be thicker/wider. Once the paths are joined will the stroke 'Profile' work nicely?
