Re: Colour filling

Because there are already paths I recommend to convert the lines with alt+cmd+C, unite everything to separate in the next step to receive individual parts you can color with the fill&contour (shift+cmd+F)toolset to your liking:

Re: How easily fill a shape with lines?

I guess it depends on the size of your object and the line thickness: try to get access of the contour and adjust it accordingly:

polygon, since we now have the paint-order, the stacking is no longer needed (in your version, it might still be, though). Correct - I still use ∼suv´s native macOS devel version from 2015.

Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

Regarding the topic "overlapping" I guess it´s more about a vector eraser tool than simply joining endpoints:

Hi.
I believe the masking is the crux here; after making some objects filled paths and some boolean operations it will render properly:

Re: Having trouble with union I think

Inkscape does have an extension which I thought it's purpose is to join many short segments together. But I just tried it in your file, and it does not join the nodes. Apparently it only combines them. (https://github.com/fablabnbg/inkscape-chain-paths) I don´t think I need an extension on that par...

Re: Trying to use Inkscape making a Rectangle box

I´m not sure if in case of the 3d box it´s self-explanatory. As described I have to use the node tool (or ctrl+alt+LMB as mentioned in the Handbook) to select one of rectangles if I want to adjust colours separately - otherwise I´ll get an overall fill.
