The Add Shapes option combines two selected shapes into one figure. It remains disabled until two figures have been selected.
To Add selected shapes:
- Select the shapes to be combined.
- Press on the Selection Button to open the Selection Menu.
- Press on the Paths Submenu.
- Press on the Add Shapesoption.
The selection of two non-intersecting shapes has no effect on their appearance, but does cause the figures to be treated as one shape.
The following images display two selected shapes prior to and after using the Add Shapes option.
