Shape with hatching, to see the background

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago

I need to fill shape with hatching and continue to see the background.
In my case, i can not just fill or not the shape with a color.
I have to use different hatching in different color, and different direction.
Is it possible in snagit editor ?

I think it could be a very good function ! ;-P
It is not a tricky one, but think about it.

Hi there

While I am unaware of any "hatching" or patterns you can fill a shape with, you could fill it with a color, then adjust the opacity of the shape so you could see the background "shining through" the shape.

Cheers... Rick :)

Thank you.
It is more like a workaround, "hatching" with total transparency between lines allow users to have a shape over an other one and see the true color of the shape under. The legend of the color is important.
I have 80 to 150 users interested by this function.

Are you referring to the cross hatching that shows up if the background is transparent?

Also looking for a way to apply cross hatching pattern with a transparent background to an image.  Any ideas?
