join custom shapes? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Is there a way to merge two shapes? I've just made a map (of Australia since it was we seem to be a couple of continents short of a world in the stencils) that comprises several custom shapes (states) and I want to merge those shapes into one outline that can be an object in its own right. Possible?

I mean as you can in Illustrator where you can delete points from a shape leaving a line/path that you can then joing to another line/path.

Forget it - I just found I can paste into Illustrator and do it there. :-)

[Edit 3] D'oh! It doesn't paste/place back cleanly. I get its bounding box as well.

OmniGraffle Pro has the ability to Subtract, Unite or Intersect shapes:

You might also want to take a look at and the Extras page at the OmniGraffle website.

Note, graffletopia is adding a continent a day this week, so Australasia should appear there soon.
Thanks, JKT. I don't have the Pro version. It was an exercise I was doing, having just upgraded from V2.

Thanks again
