Hatching is still something of a 'hit-and-miss' business for me. I have tried the extra Hatch Profile layer approach and at first it seemed to work OK, but just now I couldn't solid fill a rectangular contour. Checked all components (on my Hatch Profile layer) - all seemed OK.Failed again so drew a circle in which I found both Solid Fill and any hatch pattern worked OK. A hexagon was also OK, so I drew a rectangle but for some reason no solid fill or hatch pattern would work. Tried re-scaling, re-drawing rectangles etc, but all to no avail.
I'm baffled! Can anyone help please? Using Qcad-188.8.131.52-1-prof on Ubuntu 9.04.
