Inkscape Extension: Calligraphed Outline Fill

Published › April 23, 2012 0 Comments


Helps to fill in the inside area of shapes drawn with the Calligraphy tool.

Graphic Tablet users using the Calligraphy tool can easily draw sketches with variable width outlines. However, filling the interior area of such a calligraphed outline is not so easy: if you try to apply the Fill tool to the path you just created, you are actually changing the style of the outline stroke itself – not that of the area it encloses.

You can manually copy the calligraphed outline and edit the dots it is made of to just remove the inner dots to obtain a path covering the area you are interested in, then apply the Fill tool to that new path… or you can try using the Python extension with source code below.
