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.

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

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.
