Recently started using autocad in ribbon mode
Is it possible with the hatch command to be able to select objects first instead of picking an internal point?
I looked at this thread first which covers the same problem but not sure if there ever was a solution
HPDLGMODE is currently set to 2, I tried setting it back to 1 but that brings up the hatch popup window as it does in Classic mode and 0 does the same thing as 2.

When in hatch command, look at your command line. Just hit S, for select objects. Easy as that.
Yes I know that, however I prefer to keep my area hatches seperate so therefore I have to hit S everytime which means I have to hit H then enter then S then enter, ideally I would just like to hit H and then enter, enter, enter etc. I want the default to be select object not internal area if possible and was hoping that there may be a system variable.
Have you thought of using a macro, assign it in a toolpallete, then select your objects hit the toolbar (or shortcut key) once, and move on to whatever is next.
You can set hatch type, scale etc even the layer it goes onto. Even create different macros for often used hatch types.
For example ^C^C-hatch;s;p;;a;h;;;; places the current hatch type in your prior selected objects and creates seperate hatches.
Controls whether a single hatch object or separate hatch objects are created when operating on several closed boundaries. 0 - A single hatch object is created 1 - Separate hatch objects are created
