Is there a way to have certain figures auto-hatch upon import?

You can set up the figure prefix database so that figures with certain names will be defined as lot lines.   When importing into the drawing, lot lines that form closed areas will define parcels. 


Set the default parcel style to have the parcel area fill component visible.   You may also need to clear the Observe fill distance option on the Parcel Style Design tab.

That's good. But it would be better if it could apply a fill style based on the particular figure style or apply a particular parcel style to a point code from the figure prefix database.


EG. different fills for ponds, buildings, vegetation, swamp etc.


A wish list item I suppose? 12D can do it.
