    Importing Hatch Patterns

    I have some woodgrain hatch patterns that I had saved on my PC desktop from a disk I had purchased years ago. I have since upgraded to LT 2013 aprox. a year ago. How do I import these hatches into my currently used program?

    Posted a few years ago but I believe that this is still valid.
