Printing and area hatching

130 Views, 2 Replies

Hi

 

I've set up a coloured area drawing which looks fine on screen (using solid, coloured hatching).  When I try to print to PDF or DWF the hatching moves forwards and obscures a lot of the detail.

 

Given that there is no apparent way of moving the automated area hatching backwards and that, surely, the sheets are supposed to be WYSISYG how can I overcome this?

 

Any thoughts.

 

Regards

How was the color applied? Is it a color scheme, is it a drafting region?

Hi Alfredo

 

It was generated using the colour scheme function.

 

I've sort of got over it by using a hidden line view as opposed to a wire frame view which I was going to use.  That raised issues with certain objects not hatching but nothing that couldn't be overcome by using some strategically placed regions.
