I’m trying to make a pin icon, like a map pin.
I have a V shape as a path at the bottom, and a circle object above it, that has been trimmed.
How can I join these two together? If I use the unite tool it just deletes the V path.
The image above shows the paths – I have moved the circle bit up a touch for clarity.
Use two closed shapes; using the polygon and circle tools instead of a path and shape. Combine the shapes using the unite option in the Pathfinder palette.
