Hatching Problem

Has anyone out there encountered this. In Shape Styles in Multipurpose Settings I have changed my component hatch display to something other than solid so my sections would look correct. For example, I changed Curb to AR-CONC with a scale of 0.20 so the hatch will show up correctly in my drawing. Now I get a "Warning: Hatch pattern is too dense" each time the drawing regenerates. I increased my MaxHatch to the maximum of 10000000 and still get the error. The program doesn't crash and the hatching looks fine on screen and plotted out. I just get that warning message repeatedly.

Hi Jeff,

The cause of this warning is the fact that you chose anything other than SOLID for your corridor shapes. Using regular hatch patterns actually creates more objects for the drawing to work with; hence the problem with performance and this warning.
The setting of MaxHatch makes no difference.
