 Sending hatch to back
20-07-2012 02:03 . pm   |   View his/her posts only
I noticed that when i move or rotate some 2d drawing that has a Solid Hatch on it, after placing to a new position or angle, the drawing looks disturbed. I saw that this was because the hatch "swam up" on the front the drawing, so the lines could not be seen because of it. Until now, i have been solving this by entering the Hatch Edit, then chose from Draw order: Send to back.
And then the thing are ok

But i have to repeat this process on some hatches (on some not) every time i move or rotate the drawing (that consists hatch). Is there any way i could avoid this "Send to back" process every time? Is there a way to keep the hatch "to back" once and forever i set it at this option?

You could create a macro or button to set HPDRAWORDER to 1. This is the system variable that gets set when you go into the hatch edit and will send all hatches to the back. May still be a repeated process, but it bypasses the Hatch dialog box.
