Trying to build a hatch area sometimes results in “invalid hatch area”. It would be nice if QCAD could give a hint why / where the problem occurs (where is “line too long” or “not closed”).

This task depends upon

QCAD 3 does that indeed. Keep an eye on the command line output which might for example read:
"Loop not closed at point 11/51."

There's also a visual feedback in the form or a circle around that point. It disappears when the mouse is moved in the graphics view.

Thank you for your hint and sorry for not seeing that. :-/
