To Hatch an Area Containing Nested Elements Within the Bounding Elements

  1. Select the Hatch Area tool ( Drawing > Annotate > Patterns ).

  2. Click the Flood icon in the tool settings.

  3. (Optional) Click Show Extended Settings (lower right in the tool settings) and turn on Identify Alternating Interior Shapes.
  4. Enter a data point in the area enclosed by the bounding elements.

    The area to be hatched is displayed dynamically.

  5. Enter a data point to accept the hatching.

    The areas are hatched alternately. If Drop Pattern is off, the hatch lines are associated to a complex shape created from the bounding elements and the inside elements.

    With Identify Alternating Interior Shapes on, alternating enclosed areas are hatched or left blank.
