To use the Union tool:
- Go to Tools > Union.
💡Tip: For other methods of accessing this tool visit: Accessing tools.
- Select the bodies you want to merge.
- If necessary, adjust the Keep Originals setting with any of the following options:
- Keep Originals: Off - The default Off setting for Keep Originals results in the original bodies being absorbed into the merged body.
- Keep Originals: On - By turning On the setting for Keep Originals, the results of the Union will be created as a new merged body, and the original separate bodies will still be available within the design.
- Select Done.
