Hatching displayed differently

I am working with Autocad 2011 and I have a problem with the geometry display. The block I created was a dynamic block of a concrete nail we use in surveying. The circle is created with two lines crisscrossing each other so as to create 4 quadrants within it. I also created it with visibility states and a lookup parameter for scaling to the appropriate size according to the drawing scale. The visibility state is for "Found state" and a "Placed state". For the found state 2 of the 4 quadrants are filled in(using a hatch pattern) and for the placed state all 4 quadrants are cleared. What is happening is the hatch pattern is changing to different quadrants of the circle depending on what scale you chose from the lookup scale list. Hope this is understandable and can anyone help me?

Try using an X-Y scale parameter rather than a linear parameter:




I tested this and it works fine for me.


See attached block.

Thanks. I will try that and possibly that is what I will need for similar blocks that we use in our industry. Roger Violette, C.S.T. 831924 Alberta Ltd. 2403 - 52nd Avenue S.W. Calgary, Alberta T3E 1K5 Phone: 403-264-5927; 403-852-9711(Cell)
