Following the rules of left-clicking for angles and right-clicking for curves. And the most interesting of this tool is that it is self-closing and the best practice is not to create the last click on top of the 1st but allowing the object for closing itself by pressing the enter key.

The procedure of Complex Fill Tool

The advised procedure would be to elect the tool then the stitch type (normally tatami but not exclusively) and the color of the thread.

The square shape is left clicks and the round or circle are right clicks. 

Now the important thing is the numbers are the order of clicking, you can start the clicks at any place, this is just how I started it.
Mention the right clicks(the aqua circle is curved) and the left click is the angle (orange squares).
Clicking 15 times is the last click and the figure is finished by pressing the enter key once.
At this point, you have the option to make or create a hole in the figure, as it is not needed in this figure press ENTER for the 2nd time.

What is Hole Toolbar?

It is very easy to add holes to a figure with the hole tool when the object has been finished. Now search for the Hole tool in version 4. After the second mouse click, you have the option to create two clicks on the mentioned area to determine the stitch direction then the clicks can be anywhere on the mentioned area and do not required to pass through the object you are making.
Then at the second click, the object will appear on the screen.
