Live Paint Groups

We've discussed groups, but Illustrator also has a special kind of group called a Live Paint group. Ordinarily, coloring objects in Illustrator requires the careful creation of closed vector shapes. For example, if you were to draw a tic-tac-toe board using four straight lines (see Figure 7.83), there would be no easy way to fill the middle section with a color, even though it appears to be a closed area. With Live Paint however, you can do so.
