Stupid Noob Question - Macromedia Freehand

Im trying to fill a shape but I cant seem to combine it. I drew it using the bezigon and arc tools and I want to fill the shape, its basically like a rectangle. What do I do so that freehand will recognize it as one object and then be able to fill it. I tried to use the combine and stuff like that but they are all greyed out........

    You probably have the "show fill for new open paths" unchecked. If you check this you can create an open path with a fill, but with it off an open path won't fill.

    Is it one line? If so, check in the "object" panel and check the box
    labeled "Closed".

    If you have more than one line that you want to make into a shape then
    you need to join them first. Select the lines to join and then go to the
    "modify" menu and select "join". Then go through the previous paragraph
    if it still won't display a fill.
