Welcome to the forums.
I think this will depend on how you “grouped” the lines and how you “connected” them.
A Fill will only affect a single layer, it will not extend between layers in a group.
Adding the lines together using Geometry Add will not get you a Fill that covers the space in between either as you still have separate lines.
You need to connect line starts to line ends in order to get a ‘continuous’ shape which covers the area you want to fill.
Does this make sense? If not, I – or someone else – may be able to explain it better.

Hi BloodyQuinzel,

Welcome to the forums :)

As Garry has mentioned, the method of grouping/combining your separate curve layers will affect how 'filling' the curves behaves.

Could you please provide a copy of your .afdesign document so we can look into this further for you, and provide some more specific feedback? Thanks in advance!

I went through and joined the overlapping nodes using the method of selecting them and then using the join curves tool on the context tool bar.

Edit: Note that I also changed the stroke to a simple straight line, you'll have to change the curve back because now it is one long curve.

I used another method, perhaps a little more restrictive.
Ungroup the three groups.
Put the filling of the different shapes on none.
"Layer," "Expand Stroke," "Add," then "Divide," the shape fills.
If you do "Add" again you can put an outline and choose the colors.

Cool.

You can actually do this in one select and one click.

  1. Select all curves in the Group Group Group
  2. Press A to select the node tool
  3. Click on Join Curves

Ok 2 selects and one click lol!
