Hatch Tool palettes

I have a little problem, here at work we want to work with tool palettes,

but when we select a hatch from the tool palette and want to hatch a object it says to specify insertion point.


We at work here we are drawing with polylines so we would like to select the object instead of specifying a insertion point.


how can we change it in the toolpalette ?

That is a limitation of Hatches from the Palette.

If this is an oft used Hatch you could create a Macro and place it on a Button in the Workspace to do what you seek. Far more flexibility that way.
