FIRST: I hope this is in the right area. If this isn't the right area for "how do I..." questions, would a moderator please move it and let me know where it belongs? Thanks.
That said, I want to use LibreCAD for font design. As such, I'd want to generate closed contours made from line segments, arcs, and the like. In AutoCAD, there's the "JOIN" command that fuses two or more such entities into a single entity. I don't see how to do it in LibreCAD. Please advise. Thanks.
Turns out that wasn't quite what I had in mind. Let's say I draw a shape consisting of line segments, circular arcs, and / or elliptic arcs that intersect. What do I do to transform this collection of pieces into a single closed curve which may then have hatching applied?
It doesn't work for me at all. It says, "Choose one of the segments on the original polyline". There is no original polyline: I'm trying to make one from existing segments. When I click on a segment, nothing happens; no new instructions.
You can also first select all the line segments to be joined and then click "Create polyline from existing segments". It is easier to see what line have been selected. All of the consecutive selected segments will become a polyline.
