View Full Version : Hatch Boundary Delineation Disapeared
6th Mar 2008, 05:16 pm
Hi there, having a problem with a Hatch Heavy drawing, on AutoCad 2007.
Was all going fine, but now when I attempt to hatch something new or edit an existing hatch within the document,
the usual dashed line surrounding the selected area does not appear.
Hatching works as normal if I make a new document.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated :)

Try _HIGHLIGHT = 1 or

Excludes specified object types from selection previewing. The setting is stored as a bitcode using the sum of the following values:

Thanks for the reply SLW, :)
I have tried all the options for both of those commands,
unfortunately neither solving my problem.
I can turn on and off whether I can see the dashed line when selecting the hatch with these,
but the problem I have only occurs when I get to the stage of picking points for a new hatch
or removing a hatch through the hatch edit dialog box.

Try setting a new Hatch origin closer to the hatch.

Hmm no luck with that, tried setting the origin closer within the hatch and at other positions,
Also if I try to remove the hatch through the hatch edit dialog box by clicking where the boundary would be I get the message
"Object selected is not a derived island." which is a bit weird.

Ah fixed it by just copying everything into a new document.
Thanks for the help SLW :D

I would have used _WBLOCK I like it better than Copy/Paste. Yea, I have fixed a few drawings that have acted strange that way. :thumbsup:
