I've just started using Sketch and am aware that there are two ways to combine shapes:
- Layer > Combine > Union
- Layer > Covert to Outlines
I want to combine shapes to make one icon with one gradient across the shape. However, when I use either of these methods I can't achieve this.
When I use Layer > Covert to Outlines, the gradient is applied to each shape, not the shape as a whole (ex - fading smoothly from green to blue). This tells me that the shapes have not really merged into one shape.
Is there anyways I can combine the shapes to make one icon, and have a single gradient span across the icon?
