sorry to say, but I can confirm that (in German Map3D 2013 x64 / G 114.0.0. HF1).

And I don't find a workaround currently (besides of creating the object again, or better export it as SDF and work with stylization of FDO).

As a workaround, you can simply use _MATCHPROP to "catch" the desired hatch from another object, and apply to the Mpolygon.


In Nico's native language:

Disegnati un cerchio col tratteggio desiderato, poi dai il comando _MATCHPROP, clicchi su di esso, e poi sull'MPOLIGONO di destinazione: in questo modo, acchiappi l'hatch del cerchio e lo applichi al poligono.

Same problem on french version. So I develop a workaround, it's not perfect but it could be useful. I haven't test with version other than french.

In ZIP file

1. Copy the 3 following files in a folder listed in "Support folders"
- Oeck_mPolygon.cuix
- Oeck_mpolygone.mnl
- Oeck_EditMpolygon.dll
2. Copy file "OeckContextualTabSelectorRules.xaml" in subfolder "fr-FR" (for french, perhaps "en-US" for US version) of installation folder :
"C:\Program files\Autodesk\AutoCAD MAP 3D 2013\fr-FR""
3. Launch MAP 2013, type _MENULOAD and load the CUIX file

Then if you select 1 or more Mpolygon, a contextual tab should appear with 1 button named "Edit MPolygone"

This button launch a dialog in which you can change Type of hatch (predefined or user), scale, space, angle.

Terms are in french. Validate with OK and mpolygon should have there hatch modified.


Program doesn't work with gradient hatch.
