View Full Version : solid overwriting lines
12th Jun 2009, 04:46 pm
I have one file where I can't get grey hatches to stop overwriting lines and text. The others in our office have had a go at the problem too. We've tried all the usual fixes: draworder, xref order, wblock out to change display order, created a new DWG and put entities back in order... nothing works.

Are you using polyline (width=0) as a boundary?
12th Jun 2009, 06:42 pm
yes - pline and width 0.

Normal style by adding ,N to the pattern name in the HPNAME
See the help section for Hatch>other options.

We tried that, no luck. It appears to be a bit of a bug.

Are the hatchs in a Layer?

The hatches are bylayer, colour 252. The outline pline is on another layer, colour 9.

What are the layer properties?
17th Jun 2009, 04:10 pm
colour 254, continuous, linewt = default.

I assume that the layer is turned on. This issue is you are unable to bring to the front - the drawing order basiclly.
Would it be possible to send me a copy of the draw? That way I can try and see all settings of the drawing. And see if it is an AutoCAD issue.

I uploaded a zip of just the bare files: main is 07049_E01.dwg with changed_layers.dwg as the xref.

Am I missing it?

Okay - now after the tutorial, here (above) is part of the offending DWG.
