    Default Hatch the non-closed polyline/line

    What is the procedure to attach a hatch to a non-closed line (so that it look like a border line on the maps, for instance)?

    I've never had any success with hatching a non-closed line. What you can do - or rather I usually create a closed Polyline that I use for the Hatch and then delete it (make sure not to have it Associative) or I guess you can have the Polyline on a non-plottable layer.
    whether is when you are asking yourself, should I stay or should I go

    In a nutshell, I create 3D models from the client's CAD files or design sketches which I then use to produce high quality rendered images. Click on the link in my signature to view my portfolio. I'm always looking for work, so let me know if you need any custom models or renders. :)

    That's what I do. That way, the hatch can remain associative and I can manipulate it later if necessary, rather than having to recreate it.

    This is also what i do, i dont think there is a way to hatch without closing the lines.

    Hatch regulary crashes my pc.
