Thank you for taking the time. I'm actually new to AI and I'm having a trouble filling in a vector path that's transparent on the inside. I have attached a pictuare of the shape that I want to fill in, I tried changing the color from the fill box, but the border color changed instead of the inside.
There's a few ways to achieve that, depending on your usage. Here's one way:
- hit A and Alt-Click the inner line of the 'O'
- Ctrl+F this takes the inside of the 'O' and creates a new object of the same shape and in the same position.
- With this new object selected you can now choose a new fill color.
- Select the O
Object > Compound path > Releasefrom the menu
Both shapes are then standard shapes.. fill them however you'd like.
Select your shape and fill its interior with the Shape Builder tool. It creates a new object that can have a fill and a stroke. You can select them afterwards or just before clicking the interior of the O.
