Xara :: How To Fill Interior Of Object

Mar 10, 2011

The attached example shows an enlargement of a object that represents the result of a scanned hand drawn shape.

I would like to be able to click one of these objects and apply a fill to the interior. I have too many of them to create a companion object for each and align it.

Xara :: Get Outline Of Object To Take On Graduated Fill?

Apr 21, 2012

I have Designer Pro 7. Is there a way to get the outline of an object to take on the graduated fill transparency of an object? The line goes transparent with the object's fill when a linear transparency is applied, but remains opaque with a graduated one. I understand that I could turn the outline into an object and then apply the transparency but if I have to edit the object later, I would have to repeat the process.

Xara :: Crop And Straighten With The Fill Tool?

Dec 19, 2012

You can easily fix crooked photos, zoom and crop with the fill tool.

The first step is to make sure you have the rulers enabled (window>bars>rulers) then click and drag a horizontal guideline from the ruler.

Select your photo and select the fill tool, you will see that your photo is actually a vector shape with a bitmap fill. Click and drag the outer fill handles to enlarge (zoom) the bitmap within the shape and rotate as needed to straighten the image. Move the cursor over the line of the fil handles until it changes to a hand then click and drag the photo around to adjust it's position within the shape.

Xara :: Rectangle Tool Includes Linear Fill?

Jul 16, 2013

I`m still using Xara X1... and am having two issues with the rectangular tool.

First, the rectangle draws on an angle, almost more like a diamond. I would like it to draw parallel to a horizon.

Second, the rectangle draw includes a linear fill. I would like to lose that parameter so that the rectangle can be a simple solid color that I can choose for myself.

Photoshop :: Pen Tool Won't Fill Object When...

Jun 10, 2009

to fill with the paint bucket ... or make sure i have a fill color selected.  I have already tried that.  Everytime i make an object, and close it off, it doesnt fill.  And if i try to fill the object, it fills everything.  And yes, i double check to make sure i am closing the object.  After i get done drawing the shape, i can right-click with the pen tool and open the "Fill Path..." option, and tell it to fill it, and it will.  But i want it to fill in when i am done drawing each shape.  Is there anything that i can do to make this happen.

AutoCAD 2010 :: How To Fill A Hollow Object Created With The Sweeping Tool

Nov 7, 2012

I am trying to create a tube by sweeping a circle along a spline. I read many of the previous discussion threads on the topic but I still have some issues.

I first created my spline and transformed it in a polyline (some people recommended to do it). Then I created the circle.  Finally I sweep the circle along the path.

The issues are the following:

1) when I look at the tube using the 2D wireframe mode, I can see that the primitives are not completely regular. In some points there are weird intersections and I don't know how I can fix them.
2) I hoped the tube was solid. However, when I exported (as .IGS) it and see in another program, I realized that it has only two circular caps at the extremities of the tube, but inside it is hollow. 

I tried to transform it in solid or mesh or whatever, but it always gives me an error, saying that the object cannot be converted.

Illustrator :: Object Layering Opacity - Fill Doesn't Block Out Object Paths Beneath

Jul 14, 2013

I am having some trouble with a file in Illustrator CS6. Within a layer, when I add a fill to an object, the fill doesn't block out the object paths beneath. For instance, say I have a square object overlapping a circle object in Layer 1. The square object is above the circle in the layer. When I add a fill to the square, the circle stroke still shows through the square even though the overlapped part should be blocked out by the fill. The square is set to normal visibility, and I have made sure that there are no duplicate paths that would account for what I am seeing. (I.e., it's not a case where there's a second identical circle path that is on top of the square, so that it remains visible in spite of the fill.)
Other details:
- I'm mainly working with a white fill, but the problem is the same with fills of any color
- When there's a fill color in the circle path as well, the circle's fill color *is* blocked out—just not its stroke.
- I have restarted Illustrator and restarted my computer and these have not changed anything.
- There are other layers within the same document where the normal layering rules work.
- I tried copy/pasting some of the problem objects into a new document, and in the new document, the fill works properly.
- If I move the problem objects to another layer, then the fill works as it should. But as I'm dealing with a number of paths, it doesn't make sense to create a layer for each to solve the problem.
I can't tell if it's a matter of working in too large or complex a file.

Xara :: Cannot Fill Some Fonts

May 7, 2013

I'm usilng the Xara P&G Designer 2013 trial, and having trouble doing a simple flat fill of text.

I figured out that the basic reason is that when some fonts are applied to text, the text is grayed and cannot be filled. When other fonts are applied to the same text, it starts out black, and can be filled with any color or gradient, etc.

So it seems related to a font difference--seems most common for Black or Heavy fonts--why those fonts can be used but not filled?

And if I want to use one of these fonts, how do I make it possible to fill text to which is has been applied?

Xara :: How To Fill Page With Hexagons

Aug 16, 2011

I just tried to fill a page with black-filled hexagons so that they are all aligned perfectly vertically and horizontally. I duplicated and positioned as best I could by hand. Then, I used Alignment>equispace on horiz row selections then vert selections. No matter what I do, it will never be perfect with hand placement, obviously.

Is there a way to fill a page with the hexagons so that it looks like the attachment (ie everything perfectly squared in respect to the page)? I would need perfectly uniform spaces between the shapes so that it comes out perfectly squared with the page. This would be the first step I need to do in making a seamlessly tiled alpha for ZBrush.

Xara :: How To Transfer A Bitmap Fill

Apr 7, 2012


About five years ago I had to prepare a series of cave maps and one of the caves was in granite. I needed to have the geological symbol for granite as a fill for use in the various cross sections. OK. I made the fill (a random scattering of "V"s) and used it. And kept the file, lets call it A.

Switch to now. I am making a map of an arch that I explored last year. The map is almost finished and I need the fill again. This is map B.

My question is how to I get the fill out of map A so as I can use it in Map B?

I know the answer is possibly very simple but not obvious to me. I have tried a workaround which involved importing the whole map A into Map B and then removing the original. This worked but seems really kludgy.

Xara :: How To Create A Linear Fill

I have tried to create a linear fill and it looks fine in Xara Designer, but after exporting the image as a jpeg, the gradation does not look smooth at all, it looks rather terrible. It does not look as smooth and as seemless as work I have seen which was created using software such as Photoshop. Am I doing something wrong?

Xara :: Fill Area With Colour In 6?

Jun 22, 2011

How to fill an area with a colour in Xara 6, when that space is surrounded by different 'objects'?

So say I drew 3 separate lines to form a triangle. How can I fill that triangle with a colour? If I select the Fill Tool and choose a colour, then click in the centre of the triangle nothing happens.

If I were to do the same thing in Illustrator then it would simply create a new shape that fitted the space.

Perhaps this is not possible? Such a simple thing though, I feel I must be missing something. Is it perhaps available on Xara 7?

Xara :: Reverse Colors On A Fill Gradient?

Feb 29, 2012

I've got an object that I've filled with a circular fill/gradient. Is there a button that allows me to swap the start color and end colors in one click? If this was a linear gradient I could just position the start and end points to reverse it but since its circular I must swap the start and end to retain the circular effect.

Xara :: Applying Gradient Fill To Photo?

Dec 30, 2012

a photo in xara is actually a bitmap filled shape, so if you just try applying another fill, eg linear, it will replace the bitmap completely

so what you need to do is draw a rectangle over the photo - apply the fill you want to the rectangle - and then give it a transparency of type hue

now come the reservations - hue transparency has no affect on black/white/grey-tones, so you may not end up with an even fill as you can see from the example

you may wish to contone the bitmap first... the underlying color will still affect the fill to some extent... as can be seen from the green band in the examples..

the chosen fill ramp gives a rather nice effect on the original I think, but is a bit extreme on the contones...

[I find it useful for adding gradient color to raster line art, sometimes quicker than going into a bitmap editor and painting on color whilst preserving transparency...]

Xara :: How To Change Fill Handles Asymmetrically

Basically I am trying Angelize's fractal tutorial from Xaraxone, and on the attached picture can be seen that the end fill handles are both pulled to the left. For me they are always in 90 degrees so maybe there is some keyboard short cut to pull them individually?

Xara :: Unable To Fill Outlined Graphic?

I created this simple graphic with a mix of the straight line tool and the shape tool. Any color I drag on to any panel of this hat only changes the background color. I've made sure that all these lines have snapped to the appropriate edges and have tried many combinations of joining shapes and converting to shapes, etc...

I have noticed the vectors don't seem to work the same so I'm not sure this is even possible.
