I am having a simple issue from import SVG path to Fontello:

'id.svg' contains multiple paths/shapes. Please, make them a compound path, and try import again.

So, I have this vector:

Paths to SVG

What I really tried:

1) Search on Google !
2) Unite paths in Pathfinder
3) Join Paths in Object > Path > Join

The Results

1) Teach me other 2 options, none of them works --> Actually bring me to some kind of Fontello's forum, 2 unanswered posts.
2) Only group paths (once them don't touch each other)
3) Nothing happened.

Is there anybody that already tried to import SVG icons to Fontello?

To create compound paths/shapes, you simply need to select the objects then choose Object > Compound Path > Make from the menu.

  • Which tool do you use for this menu option?
