I have some complex technical drawings that are in Illustrator CS5 that I got from a pdf. I need to be able to fill each with a gradient to look as if there is a light source. When I select and make live paint, there are many objects in the one drawing so it does not fill with the gradient as I need it. There is still more than one object when I expand it. I've tried some other things without success. An example of one technical drawing with box of the gradient that I need to fill with is at: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/69750361/gradient-tech-drawing.ai
Help is appreciated.
