Creating a Hatch Using Point Acquisition

You can define a hatch boundary by specifying points directly. For example, you may want to illustrate a pattern fill in a small section of a drawing, as shown in the following illustration.

To define a boundary by point acquisition

  1. On the command line, enter hatch.
  2. Enter the name of the hatch pattern.
  3. Specify the hatch pattern scale and angle.
  4. At the Select Objects prompt, press ENTER, because you are specifying points and not selecting objects.
  5. Using points to create a hatch boundary creates a polyline boundary. Enter y to retain the polyline boundary, or n to discard it after the hatching is completed.
  6. Specify the points that define the boundary.
  7. Enter c (Close) and press ENTER.
