In "Corel Draw X6" there are drawn lines which overlap ever so slightly to make it appear as a closed figure. How can I fill the area that is bounded by mentioned lines (because now it is transparent)?

Sorry for a probably silly question. I'm actually a mathematics student, not a graphics person, but I need to make some changes from time to time and university offers only fancy tools such as "Corel Draw".

Convert the lines to outline paths, union the filled paths into a compound path, delete the inner path. offset the path inward by half the stroke width, swap fill and stroke.


This is an old question, but just in case it's useful to someone else - X6 has a tool specifically for this, it's called Smart Fill, and you can find it in the toolbox. Here's a tutorial.
