Adding Fills to 2D GDL Objects

Hi guys and gals.

I'm trying to add a fill to an object.

It's a circle with text inside.

I attached the rest of the coding as well.

Here is the code:

It looks like you have drawn your object in 2D and then selected it and saved it as an object.
That is the best method for simple objects and saves you from learning to much GDL.

Do the same thing but actually draw a filled polygon (magic wand to a circle with 'best fit' in the magic wand settings.
Add you text and anything else you need and then select that and save as an object.
It should create a script with the correct POLY command.

While not strictly necessary, it is good practice to create objects in the floor plan at or near 0,0. This will make the GDL code much clearer should you decide to start learning at some point or if someone else needs to tweak an object.
