Overlapping curve and fill issue

Recommended Posts

With the Pen tool, go ahead and create a 5-sided star (see star_empty_center.png). You see the pentagon in the center being empty. What I want is for the center to be filledĀ (see star_filled_center.png).

star_empty_center.png.c27dd5ee0df9ad32feab0c123e04a30b.png => star_filled_center.png.322193dca51c8590749c2de7b5185328.png

My current "workaround":

  1. duplicate the (star) shape
  2. select both shapes and apply boolean "Divide" to segregate the 5 triangles
  3. with Node Tool: for each triangle, break and remove the line that belongs to the pentagon
  4. select all triangles and apply "Join curves"

It's cumbersome, but it works. My question: is there any simple way / an option to tell AD (before or after drawing the curve) to fill any overlapping areas to make it look solid ?

With the pen tool selected, click Layer>Fill Mode>Winding (Non-Zero) you should then be able to draw the star without issue
