    I noticed for instance in the standard CC3 vegetation symbols there is a fill option for laying down forests. Can you do that will any symbol such as the Herwin style that the trees don't have a fractal or poly fill option?

    Thanks!

    Theoretically, yes. However, this operation normally uses special symbols that are specially designed for this kind of tiling, something some of the smaller sets like HW doesn't contain.

    You can give it a go though, as you can still get good results, the configuration is done through through Draw -> Fill with symbols. Here you can set up which symbol catalog top use, which symbol to use from the catalog, and their tile sizes. Hitting 'Run Now' will ask you to pick a polygon to fill it.
    This procedure is the same as is used by the various forest drawing tools, but they use a few macro command to load up a saved setting, and have you draw the polygon there and then to be filled, instead of asking you to select a pre-existing polygon.

    Note that you can also define a looser fill using Tools -> Symbols in Area
