Toolbar: Insert > Hatch
Menu: Draw 2D > Boundary Hatch
Allows you to apply cross-hatching and pattern-filling to closed entities within
specified boundaries. You can make the boundary hatch associative or non-associative,
by choosing whether the hatch pattern will change when its boundary is changed.
Associative hatches created in AutoCAD display in progeCAD and can be edited.
For instructions on how to create a boundary for hatching, see Boundary Polyline.
For a sample of available boundary hatch patterns, see ISO Hatch Patterns.
NOTE Hatch patterns are memory intensive and can take a considerable amount of time to draw. To improve performance, add hatching as one of the last steps when you create a drawing, or insert hatches on a separate layer that you can freeze as you continue to work on your drawing.
