Every time I try to hatch a larger area, my AutoCAD 2013 program freezes and I need to close the program and restart it, losing anything I hadn't saved prior to the freeze. In addition, certain areas won't hatch because the program is telling me I have open boundaries which is not the case. Please help!
Try drawing some lines across the area being hatched & break it down into smaller chunks to see if you can at least hatch portions of the area to be hatched.
"Pick internal Point" works well for this and may uncover the issue.
I suggest hatching by object, not internal point. Make sure you have one closed polyline for the area. Select the polyline as a hatch boundary.
This is easier for Acad to work with. It doesn't have to think too hard, looking through all the objects on screen to find a boundary.
