This is really frustrating me, as it seems it should be so simple.
I was sent a PDF map, and I want to turn what they used as individual shapes, INTO one shape that I can fill.
Even if I could just convert this group into a line with a stroke I could do it, but I am running out of ideas.
The shape above, each of those squares are indivudual shapes. But what I need to do is fill that area inside them.
I have tried turning it into a compound shape, I have tried live paint (even though I knew that wouldnt work because of the gaps).
