    The blue scales remind me of Bumblebee's face. Whichever way you choose to go, make it the simpler version, so for example the two circles rather than the literal scales, you want to show not tell. Make...

    He looks like he's been in a fight with a cassette.

    You can't do a poster and assume you'll throw all the imporant when and where stuff in later. They're integral.

    if i draw a shape in line work, circles (1/2 or 1/4 etc...) then how can i fill the color in this shape ?

    You must make sure that your ends are joined. then just click the swatch on the color tool bar. If you want a custom color double click the color box that is usually located in the lower right of the screen (with the object selected).

        Make sure that they are converted to curves, then select all that you want to joing and at the top of the screen select weld. Then use your white arrow to find any unwanted nodes and delete. Also if you weld and you end up with an odd shaped object you can right click and "join" - then use the right arrow to adjust as needed.

        Instead of using the line width, use the outline tool and don't forget to break apart the outline if this is going to be scaled in any way.

          You may find this reference tutorial, that I did a few months back, helpful.

              Even in a big shape there should be as little nodes as possible.
              You can delete the extra nodes and have a smoother line than a shape with a thousand nodes.

              Using your node select tool, you can drag a box around many nodes that you want to delete. Then just use the node tool again to corect the line. Many times I'll duplicate my shape, place it underneath and turn it a light gray. Then the top object that I'm working with will have a guide to go back to as I manipulate the nodes.

              practice is the only way to learn these shortcuts.

              Also if your two objects didn't overlap when you welded, create an object (circle or rectagle) over the two ends and weld them, then just correct the nodes as needed.

                  As you see in the picture below, select the node tool. Click on the node that you want to delete, then hit delete on the keyboard.

                  The node once clicked should have turned into a larger black square compaired to the others and the handles should appear.

                  Holding down the shift key and clicking on multiple nodes with the node tool will select them, as well as if you use the node tool to draw a box around the nodes you want to delete.

                  Remember that the node(s) must be a black box to be selected, else you may delete the entire path.

                    >>You must make sure that your ends are joined.<<

                    Unless you have 'Fill Open Curves' selected in Options/General.

                    With the Shape tool, select all or only the node range you want affected. On the Property bar at the top there should be on the far right, a drop-down sider box which sets the curve 'smoothness'. Slide this to see which nodes get dropped.

                    There's also an 'auto-reduce' mode with the eraser bar that you could use to reduce-- rather, you used to be able to reduce. But that only worked in earlier version and not at all (plus very flaky) in the version I have CD12.

                    I do have a nice 'smoothing' macro that I've added as a button to my toolbar though that works quite nicely. I found it on Oberonplace.com-- actually it was just a few lines of code in the scripting forum discussion there.
