Affinity Designer - Pen Tool - Overlapping drawn shape has no fill

Recommended Posts

I don't exactly know how to formulate my question, so I hope it has not been answered already.

The problem I face is in regards to the pen tool. I've drawn a clef using the pen tool by creating a s hape (not a line, because it was easier to modify the thickness of the stroke). But now the points where the shape overlaps, are rendered transparent, with no fill. Obviously not what I want. Is there a way to fix this?

I've attached two screenshots, one with outline mode and one normal with the node tool and the shape selected.

Thanks for your help

Try using menu "Layer/fill mode" and switch from the default "Alternate (even-odd)" to "Winding (non-zero).
