Hatch Fill
« on: September 08, 2017, 10:39:25 AM »
I am making pistol targets that need to be black and white.

The bulls eye needs to be black.

I draw a one inch circle and then fill it with black "Hatch Fill".

That worked just fine for some time, but now the hatch is green, not black.  I can change the color back to black, but I can't make it be black initially.  What can I do?

Make sure that:
1) your current drawing color is black not green -- you can tell this by the color 'icon' shown at the very bottom of the main toolbox (two icons down from the hatch icon).
2) that your color isn't set for 'by layer' -- if it is, the entire color box will be grayed out except for the Color by Layer icon at the bottom.

Very strange!  Now it is black as it should be.

Waiting for the 2017 update!
