HI , all of my parts are rectangles, I have tried the above mentioned changes and I still cannot get a common line cut. even with a gap of 0.0000 it still creates a gap between parts. It will not create the common line between two parts.

I doubt  there is an "automatic" way to common line cut. We make our own drawings by drawing the grid.

I space the lines at .040" to .050" wider than the part (depending on application and tolerance, extending the line .100" beyond on both ends, with a .200" line segment at both ends. I then path with no offset cutting all horizontal lines and then all vertical lines, or vice versa.

Let me know if you have more questions.
