Alternative to Wipeout?

Wipeouts work fine for simple objects with minimal vertex points, but is there a simple way to paint a hatch on a closed object that is a solid background color and keep the border visible? (LT2007)

Thanks in advance!

Use the SOLID hatch and change the colour to 255

That leaves a white fill on the screen. I'd like to have a fill that is the same as the background color, non-transparent and will not plot.

Only if you forgot to set pen 255 for 0% screening (0, as in zero, nothing,
nada). See attached, get into using your plot styles to their full
advantage.

Yes, I've set screening to 0%. I operate in model space with a black background. All of my settings for pen 255 match your image exactly. I still have a solid white fill on my screen in model tab, but in my layout tabs the fill appears to be a 50% gray. Print Preview looks fine, and prints fine on a B&W laser printer...

Not an option, 255 will always display on screen. Try Draworder to fix the
display without breaking the printing. Or go back to wipeouts.

I come close to curved wipeouts by creating polygons. The tighter the details level required, the more vertices....

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:
