Rectangle-object missing fill

Nov 19, 2012 at 9:33 AM


First of all a huge thank you for this great piece of software!

When I add a Rectangle-object to a layer, it draws as only a frame, without the fill-color. The Circle-object works fine.

Is there something I have misunderstood?

(I have the latest source code from Github and am running XNA 4 on Win7)

Thank you,

Hi Erik,

Thanks for the feedback - much appreciated.

Whether or not the objects are filled has no effect on the output of the tool.  

Rectangles are not filled as it allows more items behind it to be seen.  Circles are filled as there is a grab point in the middle of the circle that allows it to be moved.  If the circle wasn't filled, it might not be clear what the 'dot' is for and even if it's associated with the circle.


Thanks again,

I completely forgot to reply! Thank you for your answer, it makes perfect sense :) I was just confused because the video samples show filled rectangles, and I was in a situation where it would help a bit.

But thank you for your reply, and again a huge thanks for Gleed! It makes my life a lot easier :)
