Modifying/Moving Hatching

Available in: FREE, Plus, Pro, Architectural

To select a Hatch you must click anywhere on any of the hatch lines in the pattern not on the polyline boundary, the boundary is only used to create the hatch area and is not linked to it. Consequently modifications to boundary polyline will not update the hatch pattern. Once selected the whole hatch pattern is highlighted and a red entity handle is displayed at the hatch origin.

Click on the handle and the hatch can be moved (without the boundary) to a new position and clicked into place using any of the snaps and input options.

You can also change the hatch colour by simply selecting the required colour from the Properties Explorer or the Ribbon.

The Hatch can be Deleted by pressing the delete key. If an Hatch is Exploded all of the pattern lines become ordinary individual lines.
