If the ends are snapped together, its Modify > Compose, with both object selected. I believe they both have to been on the same Plane as well.

Try the Connect/Combine tool - but it cannot close the last segment (wish list)

To close the last segment, either

Select the object and tick the OIP box for Closed

or

Snap a new line (arc, polyline) to the end points, select both the object and the new closing line and Compose, or apply the Connect/Combine tool in Dual Object Combine mode.

opt 1 adds a new line rather than continuing the existing lines

opt 2, produces the same result as opt 1, a new line with the incorrect alignment

I'd like to C/C the open end of a polyline not close it

Thank you @JustinVH

 

I am importing lines from Rhino. I am having to convert these lines into polygons to activate the option to "close" them. Before converting to polygons this "closed" box was not appearing. I had to find another thread to learn about line types. LOL

If the lines form a closed shape. This means you can have several lines that are not connected that either touch at the ends or over lap you can then use the fill shape (bucket) tool to fill the closed shape. Just select the bucket mode and click inside the closed area.
