File Information

Original APPLYHATCH allows for the conversion of a color figure to a B&W hatched figure, ideal for export for standanrd printing, as a screen resolution bitmap image. APPLYHATCH_PLUS allows for DPI selection, resulting in hires images for quality printing. The size of the hatch matrix can also be varied creating tighter or larger hatches.


Hatched Fill Patterns inspired this file.

This file inspired Applyhatch Plus C, Hatch Fill Patterns Plus Plus, and Hatch Fill Patterns Plus Color & Invert.

It is suggested that you use APPLYHATCH_PLUSC, which includes color compatibility and variable hatch thickness. I no longer support this function.

The hatch patterns are bitmaps, so when the resolution changes, the relative size of the bitmap changes...

Why does the hatch pattern change when using a higher resolution, e.g. 600?

Very nice tool. Works perfectly well for me, although the simple examples are NOT working with Version 6.5.1. If you set the COLORLIST it works fine.

Just tried the simple example 1 in Matlab 2006b and it does not work.

Very nice tool. Simple to implement. Would be helpful if there was a 'transparency' ability so that overlapping sections would have both types of shading.
