Filling a Drawn Line/Stroke
« on: March 10, 2018, 12:35:40 AM »
 here is a quickie

when you draw a line it must be joined (no gaps ) to be able to use the fill
to do this
draw your line and when you get near the start of your line  as in the sample below click on the 'close curve' in the Action options
This will then make your line a Shape that you can easily fill
do each shape separately and make sure it is a closed shape before moving on to the next one.

if you don't do this very weird things can happen when you try and fill... as shown in the second sample
each line you draw and wish to fill should be a closed shape except in special circumstances  that i am not covering here

hope this helps .
