Edit Hatches

You can edit both hatch boundaries and hatch patterns. If you edit the boundary of an associative hatch, the pattern is updated as long as the editing results in a valid boundary. Associative hatches are updated even if they're on layers that are turned off. You can modify hatch patterns or choose a new pattern for an existing hatch, but associativity can only be set when a hatch is created. You can check to see if a Hatch object is associative by using the AssociativeHatch property. (See the AddHatch method for more information on creating a hatch.)

You must re-evaluate a hatch using the Evaluate method to see any edits to the hatch.

For more information about editing hatches, see “Modify Hatches and Solid-Filled Areas” in the User's Guide.
