Chapter 10. Color and Fills > Solid Color Fills and Outlines

Solid Color Fills and Outlines

Color can bring a drawing to life. Filling an object with a solid color (called a uniform fill) is just a point-and-click procedure. However, before an object can be filled with color, it must have a closed path.

To ensure a freehand object has a closed path:

1.
Select a freehand object with the Pick Tool.

If the Auto-Close Curve icon is visible on the property bar (Figure 10.1), the curve is open; if not, the curve is closed.

Figure 10.1. You can close paths manually or click the Auto-Close Curve icon.


2.
To close the curve, click the icon.
