How can I merge two ships in the VAB?

Thanks!

Decide how you want to join them together.

Load the first craft.

Change the root node on the first craft so it will attach where you want it to.

Drag the first craft into a sub-assembly.

Open the second craft

Drag the first craft from the sub-asembly

Attach it.

sort out the struts, fuel lines and staging.

As far as I know the parent part from the ship your merging into your design has to have an available attachment node for you to be able to use it properly.

On that note you should take a look at sub-assemblies, they make a little more sense in my opinion.

When you merge a ship from the load menu, the first thing I do is drop it. I don't usually want the whole craft, so by holding shift and clicking the ship I just merged in, I can take it apart. That frees up attachment nodes to attach it to your new ship.

Never used the merge; always subassemblies. That way it is clear what part can the subassembly be attached *by*.

(actually, I have a Speeder saved in two variants, "back-to-front" and "front-to-back", for different attachment orientations - if I want to transport two, I attach one by the engine to a decoupler, and the other by the docking port to the docking port of the first.)
