Subject: Specifying a hatch or gradient pattern

A hatch pattern consists of a repeating pattern of lines, dashes, and dots. You can select one from a set of predefined patterns, define a pattern of your own, or choose a pattern from a custom hatch library.

A gradient pattern consists of a gradual or smooth change from one color to another color. You simply select colors and a pattern.

Existing hatches and gradients can be modified.
Type HATCHEDIT to modify an existing hatch or gradient, double-click it in the drawing, or change its settings in the Properties pane.
