    Default a hatch that works as with Solid Hatch but in reverse, by masking in white instead of black/color

    Summary: wipeout hatch pattern

    Description: AutoCAD should have a hatch that works as with Solid Hatch but in reverse, by masking in white instead of black/color. this would all but eliminate the need for conventional wipeouts, and also allow curved areas to be masked.

    Product & Feature: AutoCAD

    Set your solid hatch to Truecolour 255,255,255.

    @jaberwok, thanks for your comment

    setting the Hatch color to 255,255,255 works to a limited degree, however it is quite distracting to work with, especially for users with the AutoCAD default color settings, and it produces unpredictable results when you print to PDFs, to image formats, or output devices with ICM-adjusted profiles.

    it would be far simpler to replace the Wipeout command with a non-printing, Solid Hatch, set to match the drawing background color (this has been an Mtext option for 7yrs, in case you weren't aware).
