Whenever I try to hatch a region, it's solid, no matter which pattern or transparency I try to select. I start with a closed shape, pull down the hatch menu, select a pattern, click inside the shape, and it's solid and opaque, no matter what pattern or transparency I have selected. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?
HPORIGIN too far from area being hatched perhaps?
I've had this happen when I try to hatch an area that the Pattern scale is to big for.
Example: I have a Hatch for 8" siding. If the area to be Hatched is only 6" in height I will get a solid Hatch of this area of the Siding Pattern.

No, that's not the issue. If I try to hatch even huge areas, the same thing happens. Putzing around with it I can sometimes see hatch lines but they are reverse density.
Which hatch menu pulldown?
Custom or stock patterns?
Did this problem just start? Or is it limited to one/few files?
Are you sure your hatch pattern size is not just real small and from a distance it appears as a solid?
Works fine here.
