Is it possible Area Fill or Hatch a region on a drawing view

Is there a way to do an area fill or cross hatch on a view in drawing?  I need to indicate a keep out region on a PCB and have not figured out how to do this on a drawing.  Is there a alternative way to indicate the keep out on the drawing?

You can do an unconsumed sketch with lines or other geometry on the model in the area you want to indicate exception to and then when you do the drawing, just turn the sketch on in the proper view.  Take a look at the short screencast.

This solution is too complicated, there should be a tool to fill an area with the sketch in Drawing mode..

So basically we cannot hatch in Fusion 360 drawing?

Hatching, in section views, occur automatically.  If you want to apply hatching to denote an area, there is no command for that, you will have to use the supplied workaround.

I appreciate your answer. Hopefully on future updates we see that.

Second this, this shouldn't be a workaround!  I could do this in inventor, so why not fusion 360?  

I'm trying to do a drawing where I indicate an area for masking off during treatment, which is a pretty common thing to have to do.
