Why can we not upload a Hatch Pattern File?

Ah, the good ol' unsupported file type. Let me see what it takes to get .pat added in.

 

For now, if I'm not mistaken, can you change the .pat to a .txt and put in the instructions to just change it back to a .pat? I haven't used that part of AutoCAD in awhile. :smileysad:

You can send it as a Zip file so uploading is not really an issue.

It is just interesting that such a standard part of AutoCAD is not allowed to be uploaded in the Forum.

I'm just wondering if there is something somewhere nefarious that usually comes to call as a pat file therefore it is easier not to allow them here.

Charles,

 

We just added .pat to the list of accepted files so it should be alright now!

 

Hope this helps!
