Chapter 8. Creating Polylines and Spline... > Controlling Polyline Appearance with...

Controlling Polyline Appearance with FILL

A drawing that consists of a large number of polylines with widths other than zero can significantly increase the time it takes AutoCAD to redraw the screen or to plot the drawing. AutoCAD provides the FILL command to enable you to control the visibility of the filled portion of wide polylines. When you turn FILL off, AutoCAD displays or plots only the outline of filled polylines. You must regenerate the drawing in order to see the effect of the FILL command. Figure 8.5 shows the effect of having turned FILL on and off. The FILL command also controls the appearance of all hatches and of objects created using the SOLID, TRACE, and MLINE commands.

Figure 8.5. You can turn fill on (left) or off by using the FILL command.
