Hi all, I hope someone can help.

I'm using Corel Draw X4. On the attached file, I'm trying to un-fill everything except the girl's hair. There are three letters (objects) that will not un-fill. I have also tried to fill them with white, but they remain stubborn. The object properties docker says the objects have no fill, but that orange color remains.

I've tried everything I know of, multiple times. Am I doing something wrong?

Ungroup all, grab the letter, pull it aside. The red will remain. Click, delete, put the letter back and do the same to the other two.

Hi Ric

There are two identical pieces in the fills, if you hold the alt key and click it you will see the other item. let me know and i can remove and post it for you.

Out of curiosity I looked at the file, and all I did was to click the expand button and scroll down the list of objects to find 3 that had red fill. I left clicked on the no fill button and the red fill disappeared. I don't understand why you couldn't remove it. There was no double fill there, although I have saw that before, and on different layers especially that can cause problems trying to figure out why something seems wrong when it isn't really.

Sometimes I have strange things go on with Corel when the program doesn't act like it should. I have learned to save the file and close Corel and restart it, when that happens.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the tip, I'll try that. You can probably tell that I'm new to Corel, but I'm trying to learn.

Thank you Mike, that information is very helpful to me. I will try to duplicate what you said so that I can learn.

Hi Milazim,

That is exactly what I am trying to achieve, many thanks for your efforts.

I will still try to do the suggestions of the others above, so that I can learn more about Corel. Thanks to everyone for the great help.
