I do not see the Fill Gaps option

I have a shape that should be closed but is in fact a sequence of segments.

I know I could join these segments with the Fill Gaps option, but I do not see it where it should be (below Sketch Dimensions):

How can I find this option?

If it is something that has been removed for the latest versions, what other way can I join the segments?

I tried with the Extend option but it does not work as expected.

"I have a shape that should be closed but is in fact a sequence of segments."

 

This shape is closed.  You can see that because of the blue shaded profile display.  I'm not sure what you mean by "sequence of segments".  Can you clarify?

 

"I know I could join these segments with the Fill Gaps option"

 

There is no "Fill Gaps" command in Fusion sketch that I am aware of.  Where did you hear about this?  Might it be from a Fusion add-in that someone was referring to?

It is an imported SVG. I selected the entire shape and clicked on the paulericFEV2X_0-1711650743630.png icon, which made blue (it was green before).

I can still select each segment seperatly. If I extrude this shape and want to apply a fillet, I have to select each segment seperately. I'm trying to find a way to make it one continuous line (closed shape).

Hi,

1. Vectors cannot be combined into a single "line".
2. Then there could be unfavorable connections between individual elements (e.g. lack of tangency) that need to be analyzed and eliminated.

Please share the file.

OK, thanks.  The lock icon is the "Fix/Unfix" sketch command.  The "green to blue" just meant that the sketch geometry went from fixed to unfixed (editable).

 

"I'm trying to find a way to make it one continuous line (closed shape)."

 

That is not possible.  There are 4 separate curves here (I see two lines, and two curves, probably splines).  And yes, if you extrude this, you have to select all 4 edges to fillet.  You can shortcut this by selecting the top face (which will automatically select all 4 faces).

 

If you share the SVG, we can use it as an example.
