hey there, I work for an A&E firm and we currently use AutoCAD LT. 2005. We have .pat (Hatch Pattern files) that we used to use in AtuCAD Lt. 2000i?..How do I import these? i know that I can view them in The design center BUT I would like to add them to my hatch pattern list in Hatch Dialog Box?..

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

You drop the PAT files inside one of LT's search path folders, then in BHATCH command you can use the custom option to see the patterns defined for you. Each pattern needs to be in it's own PAT extension file (one per file), the PAT file must have the same exact name as the hatch pattern, and there must be one blank line at the end of each definition inside each PAT file. -- Dean Saadallah Add-on products for LT --
