I can't find a way to reliably merge two filled strokes on a grease pencil layer.

When I try to join two overlapping filled in strokes I get some pretty messed up results.

What I'd really like is some method to create a new filled in stroke like what I photoshopped below.

I've tried several different ways including closing the objects, dissolving certain vertices, trying to merge certain vertices, but will little luck. What am I missing? Does anyone know of a reliable means of doing this?

  • $\begingroup$ In Draw mode, the Cutter tool does exactly that. You select at least 1 point using the Cutter tool, and it deletes all points until it reaches an intersecting stroke. Only issue is sometimes it's hard to find a point because it's Draw mode, so you can't see the points (like you can in Edit mode). $\endgroup$ – Policestate Nov 1 '20 at 21:29

  • $\begingroup$ What Blender version do you have? Try it in Blender version 2.90, if you haven't. I don't think the cutter tool worked well in 2.80 versions. $\endgroup$ – Policestate Nov 3 '20 at 22:33
  • $\begingroup$ I'm using Blender 2.90.1. Do you think you could post a gif of you successfully doing this? $\endgroup$ – bigLarry Nov 4 '20 at 16:34
