glue two shape together
« on: July 02, 2013, 01:13:55 PM »
I have multiple square shapes that i would like to glue together but cannot get them to glue.  Is there a setting somewhere that is needed to allow gluing of shapes together (not connectos to shapes)?  I have already set glue to "shape geometry", and "connection points" to on

Make sure there is a connection point at a common point on the two shapes, say, the bottom right corner of one shape, and bottom left of another shape. Best use the shapesheet for this - set the connection point Type = 2.
Now you'll be able to join and glue either shape to the other using those connection points.

I have changed the connection type to 2 for all points and still will not glue together.  I am just using a rectangle from the basic shape stencil.  Shouldnt this work out of the box without having to do any changes?
