Cannot edit hatch region

I successfully created multiple hatch regions in a sketch on a section view in a drawing.  I want to change or delete one of the hatch regions, but am unsuccessful.  I clicked on Fill/Hatch Region and then selected the region that already has a hatch defined, but the dialog box does not show that these is a hatch defined.  If I click the hatch button it creates another hatch over the top of the current one and does not allow the current one to be deleted or changed.  Of the four regions in my sketch, one works and the other three do not.

You might be overlaying a hatch

over an existing hatch in a different sketch

Just a guess

I just did an experiment with 3 different hatch regions.
While editing the sketch simply click Hatch icon and then select the desired boundary and unselect Hatch - see image.

Works here.  The hatch is removed.Remove Hatch.png
