Hatch lines weight

Hi,

 

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

Data connect. Shapefile, layer or sdf.

Hi Vasily,

 

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

save

load layer into map again.

 

Good luck,

Rob
