Crosshatch problem - Different results

Hi Everyone,


I multiple strange problems.


Our customer wants to have some symbols filled with color. I use crosshatches (solid) to fill the symbol with the desired color.


Problem No.1:

Adjusting the drawing order of the lines vs. crosshatch does not work.

The crosshatch always stays in the front. I have to redraw the lines after I place the crosshatch for the lines to be in front... ok so the outcome in the model space is as I want it to be. (see attached JPG "modelspace")


Problem No.2:

When I use "_exportpdf" or the corresponding button, the pdf outcome is exact the way I want it to be. (see attached JPG "exportpdf").

Since I have many drawings with multiple layouts to plot, I would like to use "_publish" or the batch plotting tool (I dont know the english name of the button).

Now please have a look at the screenshot "plot".


I tried everything.... redrawing the crosshatch, the lines, the attribute text.... nothing worked.

In the plotter settings, I tried every option ("mix lines" which works with the lines, but the attribute text still stays yellow). I can't imagine, why the yellow crosshatch passes its color to the attribute text.


Everything that is drawn in the block editor is on Layer 0.


Has anyone of you some hints on a possible solution?
