Using the Welding tool

dumb question:
When using the welding tool, is it normal for the original objects to still exist after they have been welded? In other words, I select two stitch objects, weld them, and end up with 3 objects?

Tested. two objects became one.

Also tested the file you provided (after deleting object 3), welding was normal. (result was one object)

Hi Antony,
I have restarted Wilcom as well as turned PC off & back on.

e4.2F - the welding & the combine tools both created additional objects. It's not converting the originial object into a new object. The tools create additional objects. Wilcom is configured to interact with CorelDraw

e4.1Q - welding & combine tools are converting objects, as I think it should be. Wilcom is not configured to interact with CorelDraw

*** Is there some universal setting that I failed to change in e4.2F ?

I have attached videos of steps in both e41Q and e42F, and corresponding emb files for both.

This post is also related to the Convert Column C to Column A post , where Florin & Hong shared some good tips on how to change a column C object to a column A object to get varying column widths. But, as I discovered in e42F, the combine (and welding) tools are not working for me.

Hi Pascale,

If you toggle off the 'Keep Original Objects' control on the Shaping Toolbar, you will get the result as you would expect.

Thanks,
Hong

Oh my goodness!
This is especially embarrassing since now that you've said that, I remember having been told this before!
Yikes!

1. Is the toggle for "keep original object" default on? I really don't recall purposely selecting the "keep original objects" !
2. To me, the little icons really don't depict "keep original objects" ... but I don't have a better idea to offer :(

Hi Pascale,

My one is default to off. I agree with you that the icon won't help much. Let me know if you have better ideas.

Thanks,
Hong

My draft:


My concept was to indicate the original objects were duplicated.
