How to fill pattern in simple shapes. Menu option seems missing

This should be extremely simple but i'm missing something and it's driving me crazy. Just trying to fill in a simple shape with patterns (hatch). Under Appearance-Fill Paint, I can do gradient, color, etc but when I select pattern it just show up as none. I can edit the pattern but there's effects.

I also do not see a drop-down box of pre-defined pattern like the manual is talking about nor do I see how to change the color of the pattern.

Do you have the shape selected?

Yes, huh, I do not see that at all, just the pattern editor.

Huh, weird.

What if you bring up the full "Fill and Stroke" panel.

View > Panels > Fill and Stroke.

Ok, that worked. Thanks.
