Changing the hatch linewidth

Thanks in advance but Sorry to bother those who are not interested.

I had a plot with hatch in it. But the default linewidth for hatch makes it really hard to see in my current figure layout/scale, so I would like to increases the hatch linewidth;

plt.bar(ind, s1[:,3],width, color=‘0.85’, edgecolor=‘black’, linewidth=[0.5],hatch=’-----//////’)

The linewidth there can only change the width of the edge, but not the hatch width;

I did several google searches with no solution. But I indeed noticed that several years ago (back to year 2011), this is impossible as the hatch linewidth is hard coded as:

hatch_path_stroke.width(1.0);

But is this implemented so that I can change the hatch linewidth?

Best regards

Luis

I do not think the hatch linewith is currently controllable.

It is still hard coded in the Agg backend.

Making sure we have a reasonable api to set the hatch linewidth and then making sure it is well supported across all of our backends is a pretty major task which is why I suspect it has not been done yet.

If you are interested in working on adding this feature, and improving hatching in general, we would love the help!
