  Once you have noted the positions,  TYPE ^C together to cancel the ERASE command.   End the PEDIT command by ENTERing X(eXit).

16.1.1.  Once you have located the problem area  ZOOM in, using W(INDOW), and  look very closely at the joints that may have the error.  You may need to  ZOOM 3 or 2 times before you can see the problem clearly.
          16.1.2.  Common errors are:
* Lines that just miss joining by as little as 1 bit point.
* A tiny tail of line extends beyond the joining point.
* When you drew an arc it overlapped part of the line it joins to.

16.2. If lines miss meeting, repeat PEDIT, SELECT the same pattern piece and then SELECT E(DIT VERTEX) and ENTER.  You will see that the command prompt has changed to:
Next/Previous/Break/Insert/Move/Regen/Straighten/Tangent/Width/eXit <N>:
You will see a large white X appear on the line you pointed at when you "selected polyline".  If you pointed close to the gap in the lines, the X may appear at the end of the line.  
    This is the "vertex" the computer thinks you want to EDIT.  If the X does not appear at the end of the line, click ENTER.  (The default command in this string is <N>(NEXT). Clicking ENTER tells the computer to move to the N(EXT) "VERTEX".)  You will see that the X jumps to the next "VERTEX".  Repeat until it is at the end of the line by the gap.  (Or you may need to TYPE P(REVIOUS) and ENTER to move the X in the other direction.)

        16.2.1.  Then SELECT M(OVE).  The computer will say:
            Enter new location:

16.2.2.  SELECT SNAPTO E(ND OF) and then SELECT the end of the line on the other side of the gap.  The computer will again say:
Next/Previous/Break/Insert/Move/Regen/Straighten/Tangent/Width/eXit <N>:
    You should see the gap close.  

16.2.3  SELECT X(eXit) and ENTER.  (N(EXT) is the "default command" in the above "command string".)   The computer will now say:
Close/Join/Width/Edit vertex/Fit curve/Spline curve/Decurve/UNDO/eXit <X>:
    Click ENTER again to end the command sequence.

16.2.4.   Be sure to check all possible segment joining points that might be in error.  When you think you are sure that all the errors are corrected, repeat the PEDIT and J(OIN).
    When you did PEDIT previously, some of the lines may have changed color as they joined and part of them had not.  Now, you should see the left-over line change to the same color as the other lines.
