I wish to add a blue background to the WC's and a brown background to the stairs. Elsewhere I wish to denominate a retail area (for rateable value) with a coloured cross hatch.
I have tried to use the TechDraw Hatching tool but I cannot even get it to fill in a simple square or a circle.
I have also tried to use the Surface Filling tool with a bit better success. I can fill a simple square or a circle, but when I try move to more intricate shapes such as the WC I get either the error:
This occurs when the lines I am trying to form a surface with don't meet end to end. Ie. I drew a line across the middle of the doorway so the fill would border any fill in the main room area. The line goes from a midpoint to a mid point.Surface: Boundary edges must be added in a consecutive order
Or if they do meet end to end I get the following error instead.
Any help on how to solve this is much appreciated. Thank you.Surface: Wire is not closed
In case it helps I also have attached a copy of this part of the plan.
