Area Fill

Available in: FREE, Plus, Pro and Architectural

Select the Polylines and/or Circles to fill, this activates the 'Area Fill' button Area Fill button. Click the button and the area is solid filled with the current drawing colour.

Note: this command does not leave 'islands' or holes (closed shapes) contained entirely inside the outer shape. However if multiple closed shapes are selected they are filled separately even if they overlap. If you need to Area Fill with 'islands' see the 'Area Fill' option in the Hatch command.

To edit an 'Area Fill' see Modifying/Moving an Area Fill.
