Specifying a hatch pattern
A hatch pattern consists of a repeating pattern of lines, dashes, and dots. You can select a hatch pattern from a set of predefined patterns, or you can define a pattern of your own. The hatch pattern you used most recently is the default pattern the next time you choose Hatch.
The program supplies predefined standard hatch patterns, which are stored in the icad.pat and icadiso.pat hatch pattern library files. You can use other external hatch pattern libraries, such as an office standard library, customized patterns, and libraries available from vendors or standards organizations.
NOTE The icad.pat hatch pattern library files are ANSI (American National Standards Institute)-compliant patterns; the icadiso.pat hatch pattern library files are ISO (International Standards Organization)-compliant.
