Filling Calligraphic Strokes

Was playing earlier with SVN, and found a far easier solution to creating fills for  closed shapes drawn with the calligraphic tool than I’d been using previously.  Simple enough I should be able to do without pics, so here gos

  1. Draw the shape with the calligraphic tool
  2. Duplicate it. (ctrl + D)
  3. Draw another line in the region that will be filled.
  4. Select this line and the duplicate of the original.
  5. Do union (ctrl & + )
  6. break apart (ctrl + shift + K)
  7. Union again (ctrl & + )
  8. Send to back (End)
  9. Fill it with a whatever color you want.

    Hmm, that’s clever, I’ll be trying that this afternoon!
