The solid fill works fine if I ignore the manual and do it the way I would expect it to work. The manual says to start the hatch process before selecting the entities surrounding the area to be filled. This is impossible because the hatch button immediately pulls up the hatch properties screen - closing this produces the error "no contour selected".
I work around this by selecting the contours and then hit the hatch button. Still no patterns - only solid fill works. The patterns are there to select, so I assume that the patterns are in the path.

There is nothing in the manual to say how to save this edit.

If I am using several side bars (block list, layer list, properties box etc) then I can suddenly find the command line missing off the bottom of the screen - the only way to get it back is to re-size the screen and run in that state between full screen and minimized that has no name! Is there a way to lock the screen layout once it is the way I want it? (as it has a mind of its own like a wobbly jelly when I try to drag things around)

barjac wrote:One other point - the "restrict horizontally" and "restrict vertically" buttons have the tooltips reversed. The one labelled restrict horizontally actually allows movement horizontally and restricts movement vertically.
They are also reversed in the snap menu.
