Default how do I create a bitmap fill from scratch?

I need to fill objects with diagonal line hatching to indicate brick, timber etc and random dots that indicate materials (sand, gravel, soil) for use on landscape plans/ section views.

Also how can I keep the file size small? When I've previously attempted this the multiplication of dots from single objects has created huge files which are slow to work with.

I have attached a small drawing which I would like to convert to a fill to indicate gravel.

Many thanks,

Andrew.

To attach an image, click on the paper clip icon before you click 'Submit Reply'. Alternatively, click 'Manage Attachments' (you may need to click 'Go Advanced' first, and you may need to scroll down to find it).

What version of DrawPlus are you using?

Select the bitmap fills and 'My bitmaps'. Right-click within the area that displays bitmap thumbnails and click on 'Add'.
