Hello André and Jörg, I remember that we had a discussion about smoothing patterns in PyX. I will need this for visualizing some Finite Elements  what is the state of this development. What was the reason not to implement this feature? I played around with it but with little success. What works is the "shfill" operator that fills a patch (triangle, deformed square...) with a shading but using this as a shading pattern (in terms of a ressource) and using the pattern later did not work. The documentation says something about LanguageLevel 3 but I cannot figure out if this applies to the whole shading/patterns. If I understand this right, we do write Level 3 Postscript? And is shading implemented in PDF? Michael.  "A mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems" Paul Erdös.
