When the hatch has a dashed outline, that it is not continious where points are close one to another.
There is an option with the polyline tool to make the dashed line continious, but by hatches I can't find that .
Is there any way to handle this? (see attached image)

This is not currently possible so it is a wish.
I have moved it to a Wish forum and added a poll.
You can vote in your own poll, by the way.

James,
So you mean draw the outline with the Polyline Tool, then use SPACE-click, for example, to draw the Fill inside the Polyline, and set the Fill to "No Outline"?
That seems like a workaround that would do the trick.

But, the wish is still valid, and it may not be such a huge task to implement since the Outline of a Fill is actually a Polyline, and the solution already exists in the Polyline Tool.

Yep exactly what I was thinking. Not sure why the option wasn't expanded beyond Polyline. I think only Polyline has it due to DWG support/conversions.

Thank you very much for creating this poll, and for those of you who voted to express their opinion.

I am happy to say we took notice of this wish and I have added it into our WishList database (please refer to it in the future as Wish #12656). Hopefully, our Product Management team will adopt this one in the future.

Thank you all once more, and I wish you a great day!

Best regards,

Could be handled by a translator setting, couldn't it?
a) seperate the fill from the polyline
b) keep it as one element, fall back to regular dashed line (without the corner mitigation)
