Bug Description

To further clarify on the feature request, I would like to be able to do on the attached SVG. It's a feature of many CAD programs that is useful for sketching blueprint or making some sort of orthographic product design. Something close to this would work. For now, there really isn't any viable workaround. Essentially, what I am asking for is a feature in Inkscape to generate 1 path from multiple paths with LPEs in them.

I think I have a better idea. I think there should be a path generated via region selection. Like, for example, when you make multiple splines or multiple objects with multiple LPEs, you should be able to select shapes within the splines, and then you can generate a result. That result can always be modified by editing splines or objects.

Fixed by adding "a way to generate" between be and a in the first sentence of the previous post.

I'm hoping that Inkscape would allow me to do that, that would make Inkscape closer to CAD applications.

I think I found a workaround to this. Actually, never mind. There's a workaround I just found.

Fixed path parameter to use LPE shapes. trunk r.15536 and 0.92.x in r.15381. Here are a pic with fill-between-many LPE to archive the effect:

^^That's definitely what I want to see, nice to see this happening. Does the nodes have to be touching? I mean, as long as there's a closed shape, there'll be a fill, right?

Realy the tree shapes are independent, you need to:
A: Create a new path and apply fill between strokes LPE
B: copy each previous path and select the fill between strokes Path and add (+ icon) the copied path to it
Limitations:
Separated paths are joined by straight line
Generated path always closed
I can fix for 0.93 the LPE to allow not joined paths and optional close and also a optional transform to allow move result instead move original paths.

I just commit some improvements to the 0.93 branch (Couldent be backported to 0.92.x). This allow:
Optionaly Separated paths
Optionaly Closed
Optionaly Transforms

This improvemets are in r.15537

I just discovered that "Edit->Clone->Clone original path (LPE)" can be used to create a filled shape for many paths at once without copying and pasting them separately. Nice feature =)
