Hollow shapes

Ability to create hollow shapes with outline only and zero fill.
Existing outline option is applied as a Solid fill.
As such cannot make the original shape transparent to show only the outline.

This would be great. Make sure to allow the shader aspects as well so an "arc" could be expanded (for length of appointment, or to indicate daylight hours)

If it works like a halo that would be awesome. If a shape could be defined then a size and a thickness for the halo. The middle of the shape should be transparent.

If it is a feature available only in paid app then even better.

I would love this.
Just change 'radius' to 'outer radius', and add an 'inner radius'. The portion smaller than the inner radius should be transparent.

The ability for boolean manipulation for shapes would be useful. Eg a square with a round hole cut from it; circle with a rectangular hole; rectangles with rounded corners.

Or a new category: holes. Same as the current shapes, except the interior it's filled with content from another user specified layer. The same shadow effects and shaders can be used. This should probably be a separate feature request.

To be able to create a contoured outer ring for a bezel would be awesome. And to have shading and shadowing settings as well. This would be great for creating a face with matching sub dials.

If you could set the center to a transparent color and then just use a thick border this might be enough to make the feature work. Unfortunately the shapes transparency level applies to its border too.
