I use Live paint to test segmented designs, but the live paint bucked (For reasons unknown to me there is no NORMAL bucket) fills non-existing parts too, making it much more tedious to fill parts.

Thanks, I was quite sure it should be somewhere but I didn't expect it to be under object.

The gap detection can be set per group, I now have disabled it as default by deselecting all.
