Would you be able to explain how you fixed the overlapping items in Node edit? I ran the validator as you suggested and can see it found 3 overlaps and 31 intersections for the two segments when they are joined together. I'm not sure what you did - aka What I need to do - in Node edit mode to fix these errors. Do I cut the vectors out or is there another way?
Sorry if this is a stupid question! _ I'm just trying to understand how to remedy this - not just for this job but in the future too.
Delete the circles and all vectors to the right of the vertical center line.
Zoom all the way in on the overlapping vectors.
First off the vector crosses the vertical center line, this needs to be fixed also.
Click Node Edit and change the top node from Smooth to Bezier curve then drag the node handle over a bit so it's easier to work with.
Turn the vector segment into a line. It doesn't need to be a curve. Actually it needs to be straight.
Zoom all the way in and move the top node to the vertical center line, do the same for the bottom node. Now highlight all the vectors, zoom all the way in then move everything one click to the left of the center line. This will prevent intersecting errors.
Run the Vector Validator until there are zero errors.
Hope this makes since and helps some.
