Segment list

Hatching is defined by a series of numbers that specify the lengths of the individual strokes alternating between full and empty strokes. Hatching starts with a full stroke. A dash length of zero causes a point to be drawn.

The individual numbers in the sequence must be separated by at least one space character. The lengths are expressed in millimetres and refer to a line with a thickness of one millimetre.


To define the following hatch: short section, double point, long section.
Specify the sequence: 10 5 0 5 0 5 20 5


Specify a description of the type of hatching.
