6. Press Enter.
7. Mark the entry and exit position by clicking outside the object boundary.

8. Define the stitch angle by digitizing two points.
9. Press Enter.
Note Complex Fill objects may be stitched out in several smaller segments, joined by travel runs. All segments and boundaries in a Complex Fill object are part of the same object.
