Hatches in ortho drawings

Hi, everybody!

I searched, but didn't find a topic with similiar problem, so I started a new one.


Is there any reason why I shouldn't be able to create hatches in Plant 3D ortho drawings?


When I add hatch to a closed boundary in ortho DWG (say, a Block that was created from a 3D solid), no hatch appears. Then, when I ROTATE my view under some ange (out of the orthogonal view) and zoom out, I can see my hatch. When I zoom in again, it disappears. I can't even select it.

I have set my view orientation to XY plane.

My hatches do not appear on layouts either (I added hatches in model space).

I tried both associative and non-associative hatch, no difference. Hatch is non-annotative also.

I also tried to create a now closed region (polyline) on top of my block and insert hatch there, no help.


Has anybody had the same problem?

Any help would be appreciated, this issue is driving me nuts
