Is there any way you could fill an area by picking a point inside an enclosed space. Basically, you'll have some shapes crossing (or ending on) each other, forming a enclosed "shape" ... similar to an intersect, but you want to portion in between. I can do this type of thing in PhotoShop (which is Raster Based with the Fill feature), or in AutoCAD (which is Vector Based with the Hatch command). But I haven't seen anything like this in vector based graphics (except for CAD packages). What I'm thinking is similar to the Hatch command in CAD, the user picks a point inside an enclosed space. The command calculates a boundary object from that by tracing an imaginary line in a radial pattern. Wherever this line crosses a shape's boundary this becomes the new boundary of the hatch.
