I have made a drawing of a cupboard including 2 washbasins. Each washbasin is an ellipse totally englobed in the rectangular cupboard, but not touching the cupboard frame. The cupboard and the washbasins are in the same layer.

Drawing hatch for the cupboard is rather easy but if it's OK to select the frame of the cupboard, I can't select the ellipses to avoid the hatch to be drawn inside these. Therefore the whole cupboard rectangle gets the hatch.
Selecting another layer for the color for the ellipses, I select the frame of each ellipse. Seems to be OK but when I draw the hatch, I'm told that no frame is selected.
I first guessed a simple form like a cercle or an ellipse is not considered as a true frame as it is made of 1 entity only.
However hatching is OK for a circle, even if it's also made of 1 entity only. Selecting as frame this circle, with the circle layer active, allows me to hatch its internal area.
I thought I could do the same for the ellipses. As the original ellipses are part of the cupboard drawing and layer, I duplicate the ellipses to be part of the basin fill color layer. I select one ellipse frame but hatching is unsuccessful : no contour selected !
So an ellipse is not considered equally as a cercle for hatching !
I hope I can be understood...
