About Region Layers

The Region Layer is much like the Outline Layer, except that the shapes it describes are filled in, rather than just being an outline.

To create a Region Layer use the Spline Tool and check Create Region in the Tool Options Panel. Once you finish the definition of the geometry of your outline and after pressing the Make Spline button (or selecting another tool or state) you create the Region Layer with the current Fill Color.

Depending on the options you choose in the Tool Options Panel other like Star Tool or Circle Tool can also create Region Layers.

Using the Layer Menu Make Advanced Outline, Make Outline or Make Region commands you can also create those layers.
