Hi @Cableguy,

 

Does this help: User-defined crosshatch patterns?

Speaking of which,

Is there a way to defined curved hatches? (Not just a array of straight dashes).

Thanks,

Jack

It doesn't seem so.  But you can get creative and try to mimic your curves using straight lines to create a complex hatch pattern: Customize Crosshatch Patterns

 

"The concept behind creating a complex hatch pattern is not difficult, but it can be tedious and frustrating. You’ll usually find it best to draw your pattern out in different colors, one per line specification, and then dimension it as I did in figure 3. This makes it much easier to decide which values are required where.  To put things in perspective, AutoCAD’s Escher hatch pattern requires twenty-one line specifications!"
