 [Inkscape-user] Paths joining two objects and three paths to one node. From: - 2011-11-14 13:31:02 ```Hello, I have two questions: 1) Is there a way to join two objects using a path so that when I move the objects, the path's endpoints get dragged around? I frequently draw planar graphs and this ability would be useful. 2) I suspect there's some vector-graphics theory reason why it's impossible, but is it possible to have three paths emerge from one node? Is there an aesthetic way to fake it if there isn't? Thanks for any hints/answers/tutorials anybody can provide, John B. -- If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate. ```

Click it, hover over a previously created object and the center will light up. Click on the red rectangle and connect it to another object. Now, the connector will move along with the objects. This could be used to answer your second question as well. Create three connectors emerging from one, invisible, object. Hope this helps, Maarten ________________________________________ From: inkscape-user@... [inkscape-user@...] Sent: Monday, November 14, 2011 2:30 PM To: inkscape-user@...

I kept searching the menus, but the button was on the left the whole time. And the invisible object as an anchor for three bars is a great idea. Maybe I'll need to join three beziers at one point some day, but for now, the connectors are perfect. Sincerely yours, John B.

From: Donna Benjamin - 2011-11-17 20:57:49 ```You can also combine two paths... so they remain distinct and editable, but are locked together in a single object - this doesn't allow 3 paths extending from the same node, but it does mean you can move them together as one object to mimic that effect.
