Can I Fill Open Paths If I Want to? - Macromedia Freehand

I'm looking for a way to apply fills to open paths, like I am able to do with Illustrator, with the fill line extrapolated between the two open points. I love Freehand so much more than Illustrator, and this is the only issue holding me back from switching over completely, but I can't find an answer on this site anywhere. Most likely, this is a "stupid" question, but I'd be really grateful for a reply. Thanks in advance....

    You can check Preferences > Object > 'Show fill for new open paths'

    This will only apply to newly drawn paths, not older FH artwork that was
    created with this preference unchecked.
