I have created a celtic style knot and would like to fill in the the background. The fill bucket makes a several pixel ring inside the area but does not fill as I expected it to.
The object was several lines that were combined into a single object and the converted from stroke to path to allow for filling of the cords themselves. I am unsure why I cannot fill in the bounded area. Bounded visually, I do not know if inkscape considers the spaces between the path as bounded, the red mark.
Is there a way to select the nodes that bound those areas and create a new object that can be filled with the fill and stroke menu rather then the paint bucket?
