Hi Matt,

Oh, this one is no fun. IIRC, you can avoid the "hole in the middle" problem by merging the coast lines two at a time, rather than all at once.

That is, merge the first two without the third, then merge the third line in with the 'combined' line created by merging the first two. Then clone to a polygon.

I tried this quickly and it seemed to work, but there is no guarantee that what I did is equivalent to what you were working with.

I converted 3 hand drawn maps which were all separate yet slightly overlapping parts which covered an entire continent into an electronic format using Fractal Mapper 8. To do this i used fractal polyline to outline the coastal parts and then did a merger line on all three sections to create the entire continent. That seemed to work fine but when I cloned to a polygon, it left a triangular hole in my polygon. How do i fill it or merge that hole into the polygon to create a seamless whole?
