Hatching can be made to work efficiently if each area to be hatched is delineated with a polyline before starting the command. Provided that internal areas are also marked with a closed polyline, these can be easily excluded from the application of the hatch pattern simply by selecting prior to hatching. Internal polyline areas behave as islands.
