I have imported a floor plan (SVG) into Blender. Upon close inspection the paths that I created are no longer connected and are "Curve" objects how can I fix these quickly? Please provide reference links and keyboard shortcuts if possible.

Thank you, Isaiah

    $\begingroup$ Don't needlessly convert to mesh if you don't need to, see blender.stackexchange.com/questions/56344/… for a few cleanup techniques $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Oct 8 '17 at 13:46

When importing paths as SVGs different paths are imported as different curves.

To make different curves into a single one: In Object Mode Select the curves (use the Shift key to select multiple objects)

Then press CtrlJ to Join

From The Blender Manual**.

Join merges all selected objects into the last selected Active object. All object data is linked to the active object (which must be selected). All objects must be of the same type: mesh, curve, surface or armature. If several curves are joined, each one will keep its subtype (NURBS or Bézier).
