Virtual Segment Delete

This short video tip shows how to use the Smart Fill tool in conjunction with the Virtual Segment Delete tool.

The Smart Fill tool fills areas where objects overlap (see Smart Fills video). Click the Virtual Segment Delete tool, point to the line segment you want to delete, and click.

You end up with two open curves that cannot be filled.To delete multiple line segments simultaneously, marquee select all line segments you want to delete.

Use the Smart Fill tool to fill the area defined by the two open curves.

We will use the Virtual Segement Delete tool and the Smart Fill tool to finalize the drawing.
