How do I Connect two lines in SVG so that i can make a territory? I am making a Wisconsin Map, so I make the outline of the state, so now I want to make the individual territories? Like if I made the outline, and then wanted to make Door County (look it up), how would i join the two lines (outline and the line to make the territory) so that they make a territory? I have tryed using the Path > Division way, but it just deletes the outline and the line I made.

And how do I make two territries side by side?

I understand the first problem. Due to a glitch with Inkscape, paths used to divide need to have more than two nodes. Not this:

But this:

I don't understand your second problem.

Moros, thanks for the tip. I did what you said and then it worked. Never mind the 2nd question.

Also, how do I make a territory using the Path > Divide method if the territory I'm making is adjacent to two or more lines? For example, I have made Brown County, Kewaunee County, and the outline of Wisconsin. How do I make Manitowoc County? SVG isn't letting me merge the lines if I have to select two or more lines to merge with.

I am not entirely sure what you mean, but in general you should just ignore everything but the outline and the division line. Just do everything in this order and everything should be okay.

And here's a tip that could be helpful for this map: if you're drawing a horizontal or vertical line, hold CTRL, and it will be exactly horizontal or vertical (or a few types of diagonal).

But when you did that last line, what counties did you select before you clicked Divide? What happened when I selected my line I need to divide and the Wisconsin outline, is that a Diagonal line cut through the map.

And how do I put a picture in like you did?

I only selected the division line and the outline. The other paths don't matter.
And pictures are really simple: find one and copy and paste it into inkscape. But if it's a big picture, the map might become too large a file to upload to warlight, but there's solutions for that.

Yeah, I think you should do that, since I don't have a clue what's going on.

I meant "how do you put a picture in your reply on this forum". I already have a background picture in Inkscape. And how do I send an E-mail to you with an attachment?

That depends if you have the image as a file on your computer, or if the file is somewhere on the internet.
If the image is already in the internet, just right-click and click "copy url" or something similar. Then put the url in the reply, put [ i m g ] at the beginning and [/ i m g ] at the end (without the spaces).
If the image is a file on your computer, go to tinypic.com, upload the file and get the url from there, and do the same.
