MacOS Settings : Hatch are difficult to work with


Hatch settings are painful to use here (macOS 12.4) : hatch library is too big in comparison to the settings window, and it is not possible to resize the window.

Linetypes settings are easier to work with :

But maybe a gridview would also work quite well for hatches.

As a sidenote, I find it quite disturbing that this Settings window is changing size for each setting : I always end up going to Annotation styles to get an overview of where are the settings I’m looking for…

Also, if I remember correctly on Windows I can use the Options icon Capture d’écran 2022-08-17 à 10.59.53 to open this window, whereas on Mac, this opens the Global applications settings, which I also can open through ⌘ + ,. I would prefer if it worked as in Windows.

Hi Felix, thanks, I see that - @Trav - is this due for a revision with the other hatch related UI in V8?


This looks like a bug with the default size of the hatches window. Can you log this for John?

Yep, thanks.
