AutoCAD Text Over Hatch Disappears
by Tom M
(San Clemente, CA)
I've created my (solid pattern) hatch in model space.
When I'm in paper space and drag text over the hatch pattern, the text disappears.
I've tried commands:
'Bring to Front'
'Bring over Objects'
Is there a toggle, or something that can make the text visible?
Thanks for your help.
A. Hi Tom,
We do a lot of landscape drawings that requires an enormous amount of hatching; so I feel your pain.
One trick I find that works well is to always send the hatching to back.
TOOLS > DISPLAY ORDER > SEND TO BACK
If you select your hatch pattern and send it to the back, all other objects should be above the pattern.
This also helps bring the lines around the hatching to the front so they stand out.
When in Paper Space, regenerate the drawing with the Viewport active and see if that updates the text problem.
Hope this helps.
