# Can not join two vertices

I'm a very beginner in Blender. I'm trying to connect two vertices laying on the same plane (these edges were a part of a face that I deleted earlier):

But when I select them and press J it shows the Could not connect vertices error. How to solve it? What I'm doing wrong?

• Hello :). To create new edges go Vertex > New face/edge/vertex (shortcut: F). J only works to connect vertices across an existing face. – Jachym Michal Mar 8 at 11:00
