I have the following blue filled path that leaves a small portion of the artboard empty. I want to know if there's a way to select the inverse part of the artboard (the white part) and turn that into a path as well?

No. Not directly.


  • Draw a rectangle filled with any color other than blue, to cover that bottom portion
  • Move this new rectangle behind the blue
  • Select both shapes
  • Hit the Merge button on the Pathfinder Panel

You'll end up with 2 shapes.
