I have two shapes and I want to merge the anchor points as seen in the image. Is there any way?
This is how I do it:
- Select in Path Selection Tool
- Highlight your 2 paths
- On the top Bar hit the Combine Shape button
- Link them point to point with Freeform Pen tool (for easier snapping) or Pen Tool
- Delete the unncessary points with Delete Anchor Point Tool, whereas necessary.
(If you linked with the Freeform Pen Tool, once cleaned the unnecessary anchor point, you will already get a straight line between them)
I am using Adobe Photoshop Version: 19.1.5
Grab a pen tool. On a topbar you must be chosen Combine Shape mode. Steps to follow: 1) Make two segments where: each segment will be considered as a line (in this case each line segment a.k.a path is represented in red color) [image 1]. 2) Do a direct selection of the segment endpoint on the right hand side within the blue circle: press and hold
Shift + drag in order to make a one side handle with a rounded endpoint that will approximately collide with the bottom of the segment oriented on the left hand side. 3) Finally, just press a rounded endpoint of the handle that belongs to the segment oriented on the right hand side within the green circle, just as represented within [image 2]
Just figured out (correct me I am wrong) but this technique works only if smart guides are enabled, otherwise do all the same, but the handle of segment oriented on the right hand side has to be connected with the endpoint on the left by following the
Shift+Click command rather then just a left mouse click!
Hopes, that helps.
