Software using: Visio 2019 Pro: For the last many years, I have been asking the simple question, that seems to have no answer yet.

How do I draw a simple visio shape, say a glass using 'free form' pointer tool (so shape is not symmetry), and then fill some color indicating water level.

10 years ago, I remember filling symmetric shapes was very easy, but now with Windows 11 chaos magic, it is a TOTAL NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET to fill color in a simple symmetric shape eve. To get the endpoints closed is a NIGHTMARE.

Simplicity is the key, our Microsoft friends have forgotten that and chosen CHAOS (presented as complexity to fool egos)
