Solid Fill With No Pattern

N/A

How do I get a solid fill with no pattern? Sometimes the drop-down menu has a "Solid"
selection which works but most of the time it's not available to select so I end
up having to make the pattern color the same as the background color so I end up
with a solid fill of one color.
Thanks,
Ed

Ed,
A couple ways to do this and you've already figured out the first which is
to make the hatch color match the solid fill color
If you need solid fills without the hatch a lot then you can set up a Style.
In your styles there are both Hatch styles and Fill styles. Hatch styles
define the pattern and are a component of the Fill Styles. Select Fill from
the Styles drop down then select New. On your first tab is the drop down
for the Hatch you want to use. At the very top of the list is None. Choose
None then set your color on the 2nd tab.
I like to name these new fills Solid Red, Solid Blue, Solid Green etc....so
they will all be grouped together in my drop down list.
