    How to delete a Void~ Reply

    How to delete a Void, which created by deleting islands?
    When you run the command Delete Islands, there may be many Soids created in a Shape.
    You can slecct the Void's boundary and edit it, but you can't delete it. 
    When you need re-edit the shape, It's difficult to remove these Voids.
    Does anyone have a good solution?

    My solution would be a SKILL routine that would, for a selected shape:
    1) copy pertinent info about the shape (layer, vertices, voids, etc)
    2) delete existing shape
    3) create new shape based on 1) but withOUT including any void info, thus giving you a shape just like the original but without the voids.

    Actually, it's easier than that. If you query the voids created by the "Delete Islands" command, you'll see they all have a property attached to them. I use SKILL to delete the voids that have this property.

    If I have created a bunch of voids by deleting islands and then want to go back and get rid of the voids, I will got to Shape>Manual Void>Delete and then select the shape I am working with and then right click and select Delete All. As an alternative, you can follow this procedure and delete the voids one at at time.
