Select the shape(s) to be hatched (must be perfectly closed contour), and close selection with Enter.
Or select objects first, (no Enter needed), then trigger the Hatch icon.

Thanks for the response.

Did that as well as determined the "shape",which was created from a series of polylines, was completely "closed". All to no avail.
BTW, I'm coming from Autocad which I bought after asking if I could continue using it with Windows in "perpetuity". Stopped working with the very next Windows version that was released.
Anyone considering Autocad might want to re-think it. Now they want to sell you a "subscription" on a monthly charge basis.

Does the hatch settings box come up?
Maybe the hatching is too wide so it seems there is nothing.

Hello from Germany!

I'm new with librecad and just trying several options, to get used with it.

So, I also have problem with the hatching funktion.

Let me explain:

I draw a simple retangle
I mark the lines - they become up to a dashed line
I chose tool-box / hatching
a popup-window appears to chose some options about hatching - I chose "solid filling"
I confirm with OK
the popup-window disappears, lines chances to continues lines and that's it - nothing more happend!
Commandlline says: Hatch created successfully

What I'm doing wrong?

Thnaks for your support!

If you click into the hatched area, does it get highlighted? Then there must be something. Also try "Properties", what does it say? Try changing colour with "Attributes".
In the command line, after "Hatch created successfully", is the hatched area indicated?
Is the active layer different than the layer with the rectangle, and is switched invisible? Then you will not see the hatching until you switch it to visible.

I recorded my activities on libreCad. Hope it works and you could see, what I did! It's a link on my server!
