Create a collection of solid hatched areas using BHATCH, selecting custom RGB colours.

Create another BHATCH area to use one of the already used custom colours, but the BHATCH colour selector only has "select colour" as an option in its list of possibilities. So you have recreate colour again with possible error in specification.

If you allow the BHATCH to complete without specifying the custom colour - just allow any colour as OK, then select the hatched region > Properties, the Colour selector in Properties lists all the used custom colours as a available for selection.

Niggle: the BHATCH colour selector needs to use the same list as the Properties selector to save the potential errors in colour setting.

I wanted to fill the hatch with a true colour.

I discovered that this is NOT available in the hatch edit colour selector, but IS available when you change the colour of a hatch in Properties.

Why is there this difference in functionality?

Dear RobinL,

This feature was newly introduced in 2010 and has not been enhanced further due to our move to the upcoming IntelliCAD 7 codebase next year.
