Hi Tom

thanks for the hint :)

Here you will find the attachments:

map_1 shows the map before merging,
map_2 shows the map after trying to merge the first couple of shapes.

I did use the context menu. I did use "primitive" shapes with regular

Here is the file to the problem:

That's good.

I use LO4.0 and there is no problem with merging.

You are not using "primitive" shapes, but "custom shapes". If you use a "custom shape" you see the text "shape" in the status bar and the icon "toggle 3D" is enabled. "Primitive" shapes are for example "rectangle", "circle", "parallelogram". You see the kind of shape in the status bar and the icon "toggle 3D" is disabled.

It is very likely, that you do not mark both of the shapes you want to merge. Have a look into the status bar. If you see "shape selected" it is only 1 shape, you should see "2 shapes selected" and later on "2 draw object selected" when you have marked different kind of shapes.

Why do you work in Impress? For such drawings Draw is the better module. In Draw you can use layers. You can have a layer for the hexagons, one for the green park and another one for the streets. If you lock the other layers, you can select the street-parts easily by dragging a selection rectangle.

Merging is only possible with B├ęzier-curves, so do not wonder, when your shapes are converted automatically.

Kind regards

I've been able to reproduce the issue:

Create a circle with a diameter of X (let's say 1cm).
Create a rectangle with a width of 1cm and any height.
Align the bottom centre of the rectangle to the centre of the circle.

Now rotate the rectangle by 60 degrees (120 or 240 work as well) with the
rotation axis being the centre of the circle.
Contextmenu - shape - merge; The result is anything but a proper merge.

Any creative ideas?

Thanks and kind regards,
