When you add hatching to a drawing, progeCAD fills entities or enclosed areas
with a pattern. You can choose a predefined hatch pattern, or you can create
your own hatch pattern.
First you specify the hatch pattern and other options, and then you choose
which entities or enclosed areas that you want to hatch.
NOTE Hatch patterns are memory intensive and can take a considerable
amount of time to draw and display. 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.

Do one of the following:
- Choose Insert > Hatch.
