create a complex shaped copper pour in VX2 Layout

I am trying to create a complex shaped copper pour on a PCB for a ground plane. 

 

I have a number of 2D shapes I've created and assigned as copper pours. These edges of these shapes touch. When I use the pour manager I sometimes get gaps in the copper between the,

 

Is there a way in PADS VX2 Layout to mere 2D shapes and create a complex copper pour shape ? Thus I only have one shape ?  I can't find a way to do this.

 

I have thought of doing a copper pour for the entire layout and then multiple adding shapes for the plane area cut out this would be quite complicated for the design.
