Hatch Patterns for Cells - 1.2.0

This Is A Set Of Macros And A Dialog Which Allows The Appearance Of Hatch Patterns Within Cells.

Release Details

LibreOffice has 10 predefined hatch patterns which can be applied to graphic objects.  This extension creates an image the same shape and dimension as the chosen cell.  Using the coordinates of the cell corner, the pattern is placed on the Draw Page so the cell appears to contain a hatch pattern.

Patterns can be applied, deleted or changed by selecting the cells to be affected, starting the dialog and choosing the options.

New patterns may also be utilized.


Using this extension requires JRE (Java Runtime Environment) be installed.  If using LibreOffice 32-bit, then 32-bit JRE should be installed; 64-bit LO requires 64-bit JRE.

Although this extension has not been tested with Mac, it should work.  In that case JDK (NOT JRE) needs to be installed (this for reasons outside the control of LibreOffice).
