Defining hatch areas at present is time consuming as you have to create an additional layer and amend as necessary to create a boundary. What would speed up this process is a multi function tool to create a closed boundary line that could be used for fills and hatches or to delete specific areas from a drawing. This tool could have the following sub menu:

* Polygonal Selection
* Rectangular Selection (Use with modifier key to keep square)
* Circular / Oval Selection (Use with modifier key to keep round)

Each tool could have the following options:

1. New selection
2. Add to selection
3. Delete from selection
4. Intersect with selection

This tool would be invaluable for speeding up work-flow, simple actions like trimming lines could be achieved with a simple selection and backspace to delete etc. Please give this some consideration, this could be a great amendment to QCAD !

This task depends upon
