    Did you paste the pattern all the way at the bottom of the text file? That's where I put my custom hatches and they show up on the second tab when I click the hatch icon.
    Trying to explain the benefits of SolidWorks to a devout AutoCAD user is like trying to explain evolution to a creationist.

    You probably have multiple ACAD.PAT files.

    Search your computer for files called ACAD.PAT then issue the command

    (findfile "ACAD.PAT") at the ACAD2002 commandline to find the version used by 2002.

    Do the same in ACAD2008 to find see which file is used by ACAD2008.

    You can avoid this problem by keeping your custom hatch pattern files in a separate directory on the Support File Search path, one hatch pattern per file, named to match the hatch pattern it contains.
