[Gmsh] Defining Mesh

I am finding that I can define a compound surface and instead of a bunch of
separate meshes it treats it as one mesh but the points from the original
surface divisions remain.  So the problem is that the mesh is defined based
on points. The one mesh is the same as the original broken up meshes. The
mesh will still be smaller on the part of the compound surface that used to
be a smaller surface because points are closer together. Any fix for this?
Thanks for your help!
