Combining lines of different widths.

Asked by badboy00z

When I try to combine 2 lines that are different in widths, it automatically changes the lines to the same widths. Is there a way to make it so it doesn't?

turn your lines into paths first (select both lines then Path menu> Stroke to path (Ctrl+Alt+C)) and then combine them.

When I combine the lines after turning them into paths, the points at which the lines intersect becomes white/ highlighted to show where it's connected. Is there a way to turn that off?

this means that in the Fill and Stroke (Shift+Ctr+F) panel you have the wrong filling method selected. You see this two heart shaped like icons in the panel? one has a white spot in the middle and the other one is totally black, the white spot means that holes are created in the intersections, that's why you see those white/highlights in your drawing, so select your object and switch to the fully black one.
