Associative Hatch

Whenever I use an associative hatch and then have to erase that hatch later, it erases my walls or the object I was hatching. Regen does not bring the walls or objects back. Any suggestions other than not using associative hatch.

You need to "unassociate" the hatch before you erase it.
When you select an associated hatch you also select everything it is
associated with.
If you select the hatch and then look at (open) the properties pallet you
will see it says "all (x)" if you look in that pull down and go to the
"hatch" item you can set "associative" to "no".
Now deselect (esc) and click on the hatch again. You should only "hatch" at
the top of the properties pallet. Now you can delete it without loosing
everything.

Hope this helps,
Heather
