Make your walls with the fill and hatching you decide.
Make another set of walls with different fills and hatching.
Now choose either set of walls - select one of them - go to menu and click ''copy properties''
Deselect - go to the other set of walls - YOU WON'T SEE THE BUCKET, However select normally your walls - apply ''paste properties''
it works !! for me
Hope that helps; It is true that the lack of our old bucket is somehow disturbing...Well I guess we'll have to get used to the new behaviours of HD
Geneva - Switzerland
THanks for that. Not what I was waiting or hoping for... One of the things I've always loved about HD is not having to move my mouse around everywhere choosing different tools, menu items, etc. Except for actual drawing I generally use nothing but shortcuts.
For me this renders the copy/paste properties action almost pointless. I might as well select the objects I want to change and do it manually, becasue this new copy/paste method doesn't save any time.
On the positive side I am happy to report that alt+click still picks up tool and properties - ie alt+click a wall and you can then start drawing walls with the same properties or just paste the properties to existing walls.
thanks for the reply.
Using alt-click to copy and alt-cmd-click to paste.
The cursor turns to a 4-way arrow whenever cmd is pressed, but it still pastes the properties.
