Join & hot keys. Two questions.

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to understand some of the aspects of this program. First "join".

I drew 2 overlapping rectangles. I trim them and now have two objects where the sides meet. I select them both and choose join. Nothing happens and Still have 2 objects. In AC this would give me a closed object. Is there a way to join objects like this.

the X key ends a tool selection, where in VW can I assign keys. All my other programs use the esc key to end a selection.

For polygonal shapes try the command "Add Surface" instead of "Join". Join works on lines and some other objects but will not work in the case you described.

Go to the menu command Tools>Workspace Editor where you find the keys to the kingdom. VW's allows the user to entirely customize workspaces, including menus, tools and most keyboard shortcuts (some are hard coded and cannot be modified).

Hope that helps.
