Can I highlight selected polygons with a hatch pattern instead of solid fill (I know that fill transparency is an option)? Either globally or on a project basis?

  • I guess the question is more "how" than "is it possible"? Can you add some more information, i.e. is there an attribute? Maybe also add a sample picture to demonstrate what you need. – Matthias Kuhn Dec 6 '17 at 15:40
  • I will add a screenshot shortly. There are attributes, but they are (IMHO) irrelevant. My questions is can I (or how can I) have QGIS display selected polygon(s) with a hatch pattern instead of a solid fill? I have all sorts of options to style all polygons, including hatch, but for a selected set I can only choose from different colors for solid fill. – Atanas Entchev Dec 6 '17 at 15:49
  • Oh, now I understand. – Matthias Kuhn Dec 6 '17 at 15:57

There is a partial way with rule-based symbology but you get only the hatch on top of the selection color, if you make selection 100% transparent you get a simple hatch fill

  • Careful, the isselected expression need to have the plugin Expression Plus installed – gisnside Dec 6 '17 at 16:49
