Oh yeah, the new ones have some kind of overkill snapping feature, don't they? There should be some way to turn that off in the options. Or, you could select the fill, right-click it, and send it to another layer (Under Arrange > Send to Current Layer).
There may be some kind of fill tool... I'm not familiar with the new versions. D: I know, I use Photoshop all the time, too! That's one of the downsides to vectors, though. You lose stuff like paint buckets and selection wands. You can try Google, though. That might help.
