Send AutoCAD Hatching to Back
(Chicago, IL, U.S.A.)
Our office uses the AutoCAD 2004 program. We work in the landscape industry and make use of various hatches constantly.
There are times when I hatch an object only to find that I lose the border around the hatching; it gets covered up by the hatching itself.
If I draw a lock-stone path or paved pathway often times the hatching I use ends up on top of the path edges, but I need to see the edging of the path as a thick line.
What I do is push the hatching under the outline by using the "Send to Back" command, which is located in the "Display Order" portion of the "Tools" pulldown menu in AutoCAD 2004.
Now, my heavy path outline defines the area well, and the hatching is shown where it should be, under the edging.
