I am new to Illustrator, I have been a Photoshop user for years.
Im trying to combine a rectangle and eclipse shape. The issue I am having is that the rectangle doesn't seem to line up properly with the ellipse. It's hard to explain so I have screenshots:
This is what I'm after (it is a lowercase b) with my issues highlighted in the Red and Green circles:
The issue in the Red circle is that I cannot get the edges of the two shapes to line up:
No. 1 shows X on: 591.5
No. 2 shows X on: 592.5
The main circle is 300x300, but seems to be on .0 x/y axis (eg. X: 692.0 - Y: 742.0).
The orange rectangle is 100x300, but is on a .5 x/y axis (eg.X: 591.5 - Y: 597.5).
I 'think' everything would be find if I could get the rectangle off the .5 axis? I have tried manually changing the number but it always changes back to .5 - Does anyone have any ideas how to get around this for the best result? I think if i could get the to line up perfectly I could then use scissor tool or something to snip anything hanging over?
My issue with the Green circle is not as big as the above issue, however, I am still finding it annoying. I basically put a 1/4 200x200 circle on top of a 100 wide square... I feel like the tranistion from straight line to curve isnt very smooth when scaled down to a smaller size (see 50% zoom in 1st link, green circle in 2nd link)... - Any tips here
Thanks in advance for your patience and help!
