    if I understand what you want... Put a contour or outline around the oval and use the trim command to cut the ends of the lines to the outline, then delete the outline

    ok?

    I am not sure what you are asking, it seems too simple. You can weld or group the line and oval together easily in Flexi. You can resize the line or oval if need be then weld or group it together. This is so basic and easy that I must not understand your question.

    Good luck

    I dont see any trim command in Flexi - What I am trying to do is this. I still want the oval and end of line to be seperated (Do not want them joined) Alll I want is the end of the line to take on the outer shape of the oval

    Captain Ron,
    Just hold down the control button, select the oval, move it away to a free area, release it and you have a copy of the original. Then a fix it to the line in what ever way you desire and at what ever size.

    So you want something that looks like this (see below)...


    The trim command is from corel (sorry) in the old version of flexi I have the command is called "cut out" and is under "Tools" > "Combine". Will be with "Weld" and other similar tools.

    Select the lines and then the outline of the oval. On my version of flexi, it depends on what you select first that will be "cut out". Then do the cut out command.

    Oh, and stretch the lines out over top the oval before "cut out".

    Got it - thanks - Problem I was having was it was making the cut out in the oval and not on the line. I worked it out by createing the line first then the oval and it worked perfect - thanks everyone.


    :thankyou: :U Rock:
