View Full Version : Hatching woes
26th Jan 2008, 04:24 pm
I've been using Autocad 2007 for the past 5 months without these issues, then I had to create a new account on my computer at work and now EVERY time I create a hatch it turns into this dead mass. Yes, I've tried creating an associative hatch, and no, I can't edit them either. Any ideas would greatly help.

Well, first off, let me welcome you to the forum BStreiss. Just too bad it was a problem that brought you to us. Could you post a sample drawing?

Thanks ReMark. I'll post a sample on Monday evening.

Just a shot in the dark . . . Is the hatch on a locked layer? :unsure:

Good idea, but this seems to be consistent over many drawing, both new and prior to the switch.

seems to me that as you said that this started after creating a new userprofile that something has gone haywire in the secondary installationprocess... The places for haymaking are several but I'd recommend trying creating a further userprofile whilst unplugged from the net and with the Virusprotection turned off... See if this won't do it... If not, I suspect you're up to (or down to, I regress...) reinstall...
Chee... Sorry, Yours,

As promised, here is a sample file from work. After I created the hatch I tried to edit it on my machine without any luck. My office mate had success, though we made a copy of the file just to be sure she didn't muck up the results. I've also attached a screen shot my my screen moments before I clicked ok to exit from the hatch. Any idea welcome. :) Thanks for everything.

:huh: Works fine on my machine.
Since the problem seems to be isolated to your machine, I think maybe you should try what Mahahaavaaha suggested and run a repair on your installation or uninstall and re-install the program.

Problem solved! :) It happened that the pickstyle variable had gotten set to 2. I changed it to 1 and problem solved.
