Turn off hatching

We are using section views in our drawings.  However, we don’t want any hatching to show up.   I’ve scoured the hatch libraries and hatch documentation and I have not been able to figure out how to turn hatching off, or alternatively to create a hatch style that is blank.   My attempt at creating a blank hatching file is attached, but it didn’t work.


How can I turn off hatching or create a 'blank' .pat?


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Can you select the hatch in the IDW and RMB on it and turn the visibility off

I think the easiest way is to switch off the hatch layer visibiltiy.

If you never want it switch it off in your template.

You can also turn off the hatching for an entire view, without turning off the hatch layer or right-clicking and hiding the hatch individually.
