Solid Hatch

Post by zubler » Wed Apr 28, 2004 5:29 am

I brought an Autocad 2002 dwg with solid hatching into Mscad 2002. All the solid hatching disapeared. When I was done working in Mscad I saved it in acad format. I then opened it in Autocad... All the solid hatching was gone. To make matters worse when I import anything with solid hatching the hatching disapears. When I copied the object with the hatching into another dwg the hatching is there. Is there a system varibable in Mscad that is responsible for viewing hatches?

I just created a drawing in AutoCAD 2002 and saved the DWG. Then I opened MSCAD2002 and opened the DWG. The solid patterns looked perfectly correct in my drawing. I also opened the same DWG in MSCAD2004, same situation.

If you have an example that is not working, I would like to get a copy of the original DWG to see if I can duplicate your results in 2002 and see if this is an issue with 2004 as well.

If you have the DWG, please email it to me at along with any details or instructions I may need to reproduce this issue.

Solid hatch disappears

Post by cathy » Tue Feb 26, 2008 9:18 am

We have a whole bunch of flx drawings that we want to convert to dwg's, but we are a problem with the solid hatching. The flx's were created in MSCAD2002, but when we save them as dwg files all the solid hatching disappears. Any suggestions for a solution? (I open the dwg files in MSCAD2005)
