Turn hatching "off"? Create a dynamic block with a visibility parameter?

But can you turn layers off and on with block editor?

See my revised suggestion above.

 

Turn layers on and off with the Block Editor. Not that I am aware of.

 

Just what is it that you are trying to do?

 

Alright, I'm back from creating a block where I can turn the hatching on/off or freeze and thaw it. Now what?

I never had the opportunity to inquire. I would have to test it. Have you tried testing it?

 

Open the block using the Block Editor. Click on the hatch pattern. Now look at the Properties panel. Do you see an entry for Hatch On/Off?

You don't have to be "hot with block editor" to look at the Properties palette of the hatch pattern.

 

In my opinion you cannot turn off a hatch in the Block Editor.

BEDIT Hatch.jpg

This screenshot was produced while I had BEDIT open.

The hatch is circled in my block. The Properties palette is open on the right.

If a hatch pattern in a block can be "turned off" while the block is opened in Block Editor I haven't figured out a way to do it. Sorry.

As my image proves not only can a hatch pattern show up in the Block Editor it can have its Properties displayed in the Properties palette. From what I can see in the Properties box there is no option for "turning off" the hatching.

 

Now, I've been at this for a very long time so I am going to take a break. I hope you get the answer you are looking for.

A stickler for detail. Good. Technically speaking while I was in the Block Editor I double-clicked that hatching and the Hatch Editor opened as well as the Properties palette. I stand corrected.

I wish I could have given you a more definitive answer.

 

But just the same, you're entirely welcomed. :)
