How to join lines in Illustrator - Macromedia Freehand

I know this is a Freehand forum, but this is the best place to get help. I am hoping a closet AI user can help me. It is easy to join two lines in FH. Align endpoints, reverse direction if necessary, then join. I have the same situation in Illustrator CS but I can't find a reverse direction command. Anyone have a tip on how to join two lines with common points but on one is an endpoint? TIA...

    You can change direction by clicking on the end point with the pen tool.
    But you should be able to select the endpoint and hit CTRL + J without
    having to reverse.

    The concatenate plug-in by Rick Johnson is also very useful if you have lots
    of these to do in a systematic way.

    Thanks Martin. I got it to work using your tip and realizing that you
    must select the two points with the open arrow tool.

    This is like learning a foreign language. Freehand will always be my
    native tongue but I am afraid it will become like latin. It will be the
    the origin but no longer spoken.
