closed vector lines and fills?


Recommended Posts

Unclosed Curve layers can have a fill, see attached image where you can see that the black Stroke doesn’t go 'all the way around' the Fill.
If this is not what you mean, can you give some more information about what you want to do?

Then there is this sort of situation.

Okay,  so I am running into a bit of a problem.  I used a vectorizer program to create the image from a picture.  You would think the natural fill are for the line filled with yellow would be the rest of the leg.   In AI you would pour fill into that area, but I don't see the same function exactly. The fill with the line is filling outside the enclosed area.  This is where AI would see the closed areas and fill it.   Any ideas how best to proceed?   This is taking way longer than I had hoped.

You are going to have to join all the separate open curves. You are going to have to duplicate some of them and do the joining twice because there is one open curve separating two areas. It is a lot of work. Note also that the head and neck and torso are not separated.

That ain´t gonna work in Affinity Designer. The centreline autotrace looks awful. Better do an autotrace for a color filled shape -then back in Affinity Designer go Layer->Geometry->Separate curves. Send the outer path to the background and color fill the inner shapes to your liking.

Can you do that in Affinity? 

Affinity doesn't have any auto-tracing functions.

Thanks..     Just found out it doesn't work on a Mac in the current OS. 😞

Type autotrace into the forum search box and you should find many discussions, and many suggestions for other tracing programs. Perhaps one of them will work on your system.

But where did you see that it doesn't work on a current macOS? This page says it should work on 10.11 or higher: https://inkscape-manuals.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing-on-mac.html

Which OS? Works for me on Intel Mac OS 11.6.8. There are two versions available for Mac OS Intel and arm64 which I assume means the new Apple chipset.

Did you choose the intel chipset from the link I provided?
