difference bwtween Healing & Join


New member
Can any one tell be what an example witch is impossible to do with "Join", but possible with "Healing"?
and I want to know exact meaning of "Merging Distance" and "Objective Distance" in healing Command.

This thread on Eng-Tips might help explain the difference: http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=72402

The exact meaning of the two parameters is in the Online Help (press F1 when in the Healing command)

It is impossible (or at least unlikely) to maintain continuity when using Join to eliminate a small gap.

thanks for your reply.
I've read the Help and the linked page, but I'm looking for a good example to understand better.
