hatch - layer

I noticed that after I hatch an area using match properties, the new hatch
uses the source layer and that is very good.

But after that, if I hatch another area and change the pattern, the new
hatch is created in the previous used layer instead of the current layer,
and that is very bad.

Can this change?

Keep track of your HPLAYER variable:

The problem is that after you hatch an area using the match properties (in
hatch command) the HPLAYER variable changes to the layer of the hatch
previous selected, even if you change the pattern. In my opinion it should
change to the default value, i.e. the current layer

A lot of things "should" in this release :smileyhappy:

You have to keep an eye on the ribbon, destination layer is always listed.
