FS#704 - Old Hatch Function

It would be nice to implement the old hatch function as a tile function in parallel with the newer more industry standard hatch function. A tile function that would allow overlap +/- would be even better, and a great productivity boost, almost like an array within a set of bounds.

Thanks, Bob

Pattern fill tool:

Use case:

  1. Select closed contour
  2. Start tool
  3. Dialog:
    • Choose predefined pattern or tick '[ ] Use clipboard content as pattern'
    • Choose pattern parameters
      • margins (negative for overlap)
      • [ ] repeat pattern (uncheck to paste one single copy of the clipboard into a contour and clip at contour borders)


  • Loose entities or new block with the pattern as contents.

Is this still in the running?
It doesn't look close to what hatching is in 2021.
