It is one of my observations when using any ZWCAD+ and prior Intellicad based ZWCAD.
GRADIENT HATCH PLOT ISSUE:
If gradient hatch is created and attempted to plot PDF (using DWG to PDF) ZWCAD+ does not print gradient hatch in PDF. When attempted to plot JPG (using DWG to JPG) ZWCAD+ creates JPG with gradient hatch, but hatch portion appears to be messy.
If same thing attempted with ZWCAD 2010 / 11 / 12, then ZWCAD 2010/11/12 plots gradient hatch without any problem.
SOLID HATCH PLOT ISSUE:
When attempted to produce PDF (using DWG to PDF) or JPG (using DWG to JPG) of drawing containing SOLID HATCH, then in the rectangular portion a thin white coloured line running from top left corner to bottom right corner appears.

JPG plot of HATCH using ZWCAD 2012
For testing purpose we have created a .DWG file which I've attached here in thread. Also PDF and JPG files produced from ZWCAD 2012 and ZWCAD+2012 for the reference.

Hi, yes, there are problems when using pdf.pc5 and jpeg.pc5 plotter to plot drawing with gradient hatch. Thanks for your feedback, we will try to fix them as soon as possible.
Plotting gradient hatch to PDF or JPEG works well in ZWCAD 2012, please use ZWCAD 2012 as a temporary solution. If you have ZWCAD+ activated on your computer, ZWCAD 2012 on the same computer would be activated automatically.

Is ZWCAD+2014 capable of producing smooth gradient hatch while plotting after release of SP1?
(Apologies if my words are rude.) Our clients are suffering through this issue. We provided them ZWCAD 2012 (vernum 17176) as temporary solution, but colour shades printed in ZWCAD 2012 are lot different than ZWCAD+2014's colour shade purity.
Please guide us on such issue.

Better being specific rather than spoiling product value.
Where ZWCAD+ shows gradient hatch in preview, but it does not print.
