how do I ceate a fill from separate lines?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone knows how to create a fill in between selected lines that are separate. I understand there is the compose tool that can then have a fill attributed, but I am trying to find something like the archiCAD tool where you can just click on a space with the fill tool and it fills to the closest boundary?

Any tips or thoughts would be great,

i love the 2D Polygon Tool. In the second mode (paintpot), you click in the middle and Vectorworks will flood the area for you. I use this a lot.

2D polygon can take some time with more complex outlines. Also worth saving your work prior to use as its not unknown for VW to get itself 'confused' and windows mark it as not responding.

Plus groups and layers can affect its operation.
