Autocad 2013 hatch

Hi,

 

I recently upgraded from Autocad 2011 to Autocad 2013. When editing hatch in 2011 I used to be able to single click the hatch pattern, and then use one of the many grips to edit it, but now, when single clicking the hatch pattern in Autocad 2013, only one grip appears in the centre, in the form of a blue dot.

 

How do I set my Autocad 2013 to behave as it did in Autocad 2011?

 

Thanks in advance

Turn your hatch to non-associative (either in properties - or a tick box when you create the hatch in the dialogue). But it is probably better to leave it as associative and just select the object that you have hatched and edit that (the hatch will change with it).

Hi,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Unfortunately I do have my hatch selection set to non-associative, but still only get a "blue dot" grip in the centre of the hatch pattern, instead of the usual boundary grips?

Sorry, you were rite! :smileyhappy:

 

I don't know what it was, but when I restarted my Autocad, it worked perfectly fine when associative was un-checked.

 

Thanks a mil!!
