Is it possible to change the thickness of patterns drawn by the TikZ pattern library (IV Libraries, 41 Pattern Library)? Setting thick on the node, only applies to the node itself, not the filling pattern.

  \node[square,thick,pattern={north east lines}] {}; % draws a thick square with a thin pattern

  • AFAIK the patterns are not key-aware... So you will need to define your own pattern or modify the code in pgflibrarypatterns.code.tex. – Count Zero Jul 20 '12 at 10:05
  • Yeah, I think @CountZero is right, you won't get around defining a new pattern for this. For the north east lines pattern, however, you're in luck: At tex.stackexchange.com/a/29367/2552 there's a new version of the pattern which allows changing the line width and the distance between the lines using keys. – Jake Jul 20 '12 at 10:24
