The Region command converts closed entities into a solid entity.
You can create regions from closed entities, such as polylines, polygons, circles, ellipses, closed splines and donuts.
Creating regions typically has no visible effect on a drawing. However, if the original entity had a width or lineweight, that information is lost when you create the region.
To create regions
Do one of the following:
- Click the Region tool button () in the Draw toolbar.
- Choose Region in the Draw menu.
- Type Region in the command bar, then press Enter.
You are prompted: Select objects:
Select the entities, then right click or press Enter.
The command bar displays how many regions have been created.
