Help with unite function in Illustrator
0

Hi, well I'm trying to unite two letters but when doing so the final shape is distorted.
What I did was converted the letters to Create Outlines. After that I selected both shapes and united them in the Pathfinder tab. The result was a distorted final shape.
What can I do so it doesn't distort.

Thanks.

It should work fine as you did it - try it with a different font - it may have something to do with the structure of the glyphs in that specific font.

Never mind, I found the solution. Turns out I had to remove the check-mark beside Align New Objects to Pixel Grid in the mini menu of the Transform tab.
Hope this helps anyone having this problem.
Thanks anyway.

Align New Objects to Pixel Grid is not checked by Default -
