Make the outer shape a solid element and the inner shapes holes. This is done by selecting the proper Area type during the shape creation.
Using the Element Selection tool, select all of the elements.
From the menu bar, select Edit > Group, or just key Ctrl + G
You now have a Group Hole. To apply a fill to the element, select Change to Active Fill Type from the Change Attributes tool box.
If you don't see the results, turn on the Fill display from the View Attributes dialog.
