I'm sure all of you who have read some of my posts on the subject are geting sick of this but I'll beg your patience once more. :lol: After getting rhino and using it to change my autocad files over to ai format so they would be useable in corel draw some progress was made. My problem is getting the fill command to work. Tim (wunwinglow) has given some valuable tips that got me quite a ways further than I would have gotten otherwise. After importing the ai file I had to ungroup the whole thing, then I chose one section of fuselage and used the pick tool to select the the outline of the section, then I used the arrange-convert outline to object to make it all one piece. At this point the fill dialog box on the right side of the screen started working. After some fiddling I noticed that the outline of the fuselage section had changed color to the one I was hoping to fill the piece with. I selected the shape tool and found that the outline had nodes on the inside and outside of the outline. So I grabbed the interior nodes and was able to drag them all into the middle and thus fill the piece with a solid color. As nice as it was to see some progress I know that I need a better technique or something cause that won't work on some of the more complicated pieces. So for those of you who know what to do to solve this problem, I anxiously await your reply.
