Is there a way to control weight of line for hatch?
I'm trying to make some style for number of areas and when I do hatch on a paper it's almost invisible because it's weight!
Tons of hatch patterns and they all useless!?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Drawing objects or data connected; shp, sdf, etc?
lw is accessible in properties or in the layer properties manager. There is a button to turn lw off and on on dispaly also.
FDO objects in styles
look in help search for plotting lineweights
for FDO features you can apply a lineweight for hatches but not using Display Manager's Style Editor. You need to add it manually to your .layer file.
For a simple hatch (Dash) you need to add the <LineWeight> tag:
... <Name>DASH</Name> <Graphics> <Path> <Geometry>M 0.0,0.0 h 0.125 M 0.125,0.125 h 0.125</Geometry> <LineColor>%HATCHCOLOR%</LineColor> <LineWeight>0.1</LineWeight> ...
save the layer file (context menu).
Open in XML/text Editor
Add <lineweight> tag for hatch definition
load layer into map again.
