I drew a trapezoid. I successfully used Edit > Fill to fill it with black.
I need it to be bigger, so I drew new edges, farther out from the old edges.
Now Edit > Fill will not fill the empty area between the original, smaller, trapezoid, and the new, larger edges.
Figured it out; had to select an area first, which I did with the Magic Wand tool.
