So I've been using Illustrator for 6 years, and thought I knew everything about the pathfinder feature. Today I tried to use the merge pathfinder tool on some outlined text, and have gotten a 'neatly' merged object, and not the final object I wanted. Take a look at the pictures, and tell me how to stop it from happening.
- I already checked off Align to Pixel Grid and Scale Strokes and Effects.
P.S. I want all the text to merge like the 'y' did.
