Help with unite function in Illustrator

Tom C.'s picture

Hi, well I'm trying to unite two letters but when doing so the final shape is distorted.
What I did was converted the letters to Create Outlines. After that I selected both shapes and united them in the Pathfinder tab. The result was a distorted final shape.
What can I do so it doesn't distort.

It should work fine as you did it - try it with a different font - it may have something to do with the structure of the glyphs in that specific font.

Never mind, I found the solution. Turns out I had to remove the check-mark beside Align New Objects to Pixel Grid in the mini menu of the Transform tab.
Hope this helps anyone having this problem.
Thanks anyway.
