comment How do I fill in the paths in this vector shape?
Also, you can apply both a vector and a bitmapped mask to the same layer.

comment How do I fill in the paths in this vector shape?
The adjustment layer button is at the panel at the bottom of layers. The icon is the circle that is half white and half black. Solid color will be the top option, followed by gradient, etc. You can do this same thing with any sort of adjustment. I like to do it with fancy desaturation and levels/curves for neat color isolation effects, but it does a pretty good job of simulating vector style shapes too. The mask button is right next to the ajustment layer button (The square with the circle punched out of the middle).

comment How do I fill in the paths in this vector shape?
You have to add the path as a mask. If you have multiple paths, go into the paths pane and copy, paste them all into one entry. Then select that entry, go back to layers and click the mask button. Also your paths have to be closed (completed, contained units), or the path will fill the screen because of broken edges. That is a frequent goof, when you think you clicked back on the start point but actually clicked a microscopic bit outside of it.

comment Strange grey bordering/outline in Illustrator
I can't even count the number of times I've had a client or a clueless supervisor tell me to take the stroke off an object when it was just this happening and their monitor being crappy.
