Ok, just got 2013 Architecture. How do I import hatch patterns into it.
I have several stone pattens I use from StoneCAD and can't figure out how to get them into 2013.
Does anyone have a better source for stone hatch patterns and how to install them into 13?
Are the hatch patterns you have in a folder that is in the AutoCAD search path? To check, open the Options dialog and go to the Files tab. Is the folder listed under the Working Support File Search Path node (second node from top)? If not, go to the Support File Search Path node (top node) and add that folder (or moved the hatch patterns to a folder that is listed).
They were under a "hidden" folder in support. An "enu" folder that didn't show up until I did a file search for "*.pat".
and then that folder could only be opened by right clicking the search findings and opening it that way.
anyway, I think I got them transferred,
I have moved my custom hatch patterns I received from another source, and put them into a folder named:
I have included this path into Tools...Options...Support File Search Path.
Back on the Hatch Creation toolbar, the hatches show up in the list of Patterns, however, they are not fully there. The name is there, yet there is only a single diagonal line across the box, and when I click on it, it instantly defaults to ANSI31.
I have used these hatches before and they have worked wonderfully. For some reason my AutoCAD install took them out, and now I am trying to put them back in.
