Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to toggle the view of the current document between active fill and outline sketch modes.


This command can be accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by:

  • Choosing the View » Views » Fill command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button, on the Miscellaneous Tools drop-down () of the Utilities toolbar.
  • Using the Shift+F keyboard shortcut.


After launching the command, the view of the current document will either be active fill, or outline sketch mode, depending on the current view status.


  1. By default the document is in active fill mode, which means that trace widths, flashes, and polygons, are all filled in. When the document is in outline sketch mode, all the flashes and polygons are displayed as outlines only, and traces as zero-width lines. Custom apertures are not affected by this command.
