    Can't get my lines and arcs to join.

    It seems like I have resolved this before but I can't figure it out this time. I have a lot of little line segments and arcs that I have copied, rotated and translated all in a snap grid so that there should be zero distance between their endpoints. When I select all for a closed polygon I want to join and try to join, I still have individual pieces. How can I get the segments and arcs joined? I have tried different join tolerances, reversing a part of the chape and trying again and creating offsets and open offsets of zero distance. They wouldn't join either.

    Perhaps you could post your file. I've always managed to get things joined up, even if I have to use huge join tolerances.

    This was because I had multiple copies of the lines and arcs hidden beneath the ones I selected. Be careful not to create hidden copies when copy/pasting.
