I need assistant to figure out how can I fill the empty holes within compound path with color using Adobe Illustrator.

.SVG compound path

Download .SVG file

  • @Benteh fill the circular holes with color. I tried nothing so far due to lack experience with Illustrator. – Eihab Jan 31 '16 at 12:49

There is a simple way to do what you require.

  • Firstly, select the shape using the Selection tool (V).
  • Next, from the Object menu, select Compound Path > Release.

The items should all become separate shapes which can be selected individually.

  • Using release didn`t fully worked since selection tool apply only to the whole path. Applying "isolate selected group" did help. Thanks for your guidance. – Eihab Feb 3 '16 at 10:33
