Hatch Tab (Hatch and Gradient Dialog Box)

List of Options

The following options are displayed.

Type and Pattern

Specifies the hatch’s type, pattern, color, and background color.

Type

Specifies whether to create a predefined, user-defined, or custom hatch pattern.

Predefined patterns are stored in the following files, which are supplied with the
program:

  • AutoCAD: acad.pat or acadiso.pat
  • AutoCAD LT: acadlt.pat or acadltiso.pat

User-defined patterns are based on the current linetype in your drawing. A custom
pattern is a pattern that is defined in any custom PAT files that you have added to
the search path.

Pattern

Displays a selection of ANSI, ISO, and other industry-standard hatch patterns. Select
SOLID to create solid fill. The Pattern option is available only when Type is set
to Predefined. (HPNAME system variable)

[…] Button

Displays the Hatch Pattern Palette dialog box, in which you can preview images for
all predefined patterns.

Color

Overrides the current color with a specified color for hatch patterns and solid fills.
(HPCOLOR system variable)

Background Color

Specifies the background color for new hatch objects. Choose None to turn off the
background color. (HPBACKGROUNDCOLOR system variable)

Swatch

Displays a preview of the selected pattern. Click the swatch to display the Hatch
Pattern Palette dialog box.

Custom Pattern

Lists the available custom patterns. The most recently used custom patterns appear
at the top of the list. The Custom Pattern option is available only when Type is set
to Custom. (HPNAME system variable)

[…] Button

Displays the Hatch Pattern Palette dialog box, in which you can preview images for
all custom patterns.

Angle and Scale

Specifies an angle and scale for the selected hatch pattern.

Angle

Specifies an angle for the hatch pattern relative to the X axis of the current UCS. ( HPANG system variable)

Scale

Expands or contracts a predefined or custom pattern. This option is available only
when Type is set to Predefined or Custom. ( HPSCALE system variable)

Double

For user-defined patterns, draws a second set of lines at 90 degrees to the original
lines, creating a crosshatch. This option is available only when Type is set to User
Defined. ( HPDOUBLE system variable)

Relative to Paper Space

Scales the hatch pattern relative to paper space units. This allows you to display
hatch patterns at a scale that is appropriate for your named layout. This option is
available only from a named layout.

Spacing

Specifies the spacing of lines in a user-defined pattern. This option is available
only when Type is set to User Defined. ( HPSPACE system variable)

ISO Pen Width

Scales an ISO predefined pattern based on the selected pen width. This option is available
only when Type is set to Predefined and Pattern is set to one of the available ISO
patterns.

Hatch Origin

Controls the starting location of hatch pattern generation. Some hatches, such as
brick patterns, are meant to be aligned with a point on the hatch boundary. By default,
all hatch origins correspond to the current UCS origin.

Use Current Origin

Uses the hatch origin point stored in the HPORIGIN system variable.

Specified Origin

Assigns a new hatch origin using the following options.

Click to Set New Origin

Specifies the new hatch origin point directly.

Default to Boundary Extents

Calculates a new origin based on the rectangular extents of the boundary for the hatch
object. Choices include each of the four corners of the extents and its center. (
HPORIGINMODE system variable)

Store as Default Origin

Stores the value of the new hatch origin in the HPORIGIN system variable.
