Did you know that you can select several different areas and have AutoCAD create a separate hatch for each one of them instead of them being one hatch? To do so, follow these simple steps:
Type Hatch at the command line.
At the next prompt type T to get you into the hatch-setting dialog box.
Under the Options area (middle-right portion of the dialog box), click on Create separate hatches.
Please note: This setting will remain set to this option until you go back through these same steps and uncheck the box.
Notes from Cadalyst tip reviewer R.K. McSwain: If you have never explored all of the hatch options, you may not be aware that a single hatch command can create separate, individual hatch objects or separate, but joined, hatch objects. If you already have some combined hatches, see tip #3713 for a related tip on how to separate them.
