FS#763 - Hatching with just one click
Opened by Christian Aigner (caigner) - Monday, 11 February 2013, 18:34 GMT+2
My task: To hatch an area.
Right now, if I want to fill an area with a hatch pattern, I have to select all the enclosing objects (lines, arcs) and then I can select the hatch tool. That can be under some circumstances a tedious task.
Step 1: Create a rectangle.
Just for fun try recreating my second example (see Attachment 2: Hatching2.png)
Therefore I would like to suggest a far more simple approach.
Step 1: Select the Hatch Tool.
Of course that would mean that the hatch style is already pre-defined and can be changed later, if needed.
In this way productivity can be increased by ... [fill in you own estimate] ... times.
Example 2 would need only 13 clicks to hatch all the areas (including the hatch tool button).
