How to set the Select objects mode for the Hatch command?

A - answer If you need to change (preset) the default selection mode for the HATCH command - not by picking a point but by selection of the border objects - you can do this by changing the command icon in the ribbon.

Use the CUI dialog to change the hatch icon/command to call _HATCH _Sel instead of the default _HATCH. So the new format of the command will read:

^C^C_hatch _sel
