I have custom pull down menus that I use for hatching. The reason I use this method instead of the tool pallet or the regular hatch toolbar is that I have quick access to multiple commonly used hatch patterns already set up with scales and directions and can pick multiple objects at once. The only problem is I loose the associativity when stretching an object. It's Associative if I use the hatch command or the tool pallet. I had no problem with this method when using AutoCAD 2010. Is there some system variable setting that has changed? I've tried everything.
Thanks for any help,

Here is one example. It's just the hatch command in a pull down with macros so I can pick any hatch I use with just two clicks of the mouse. It will have the layer, pattern, scale and direction I want. I can also pick as many objects as I want at once which I can't seam to do with the tool pallet. If I just use the hatch command, then I have to pick the pattern,
scale and direction. That's just too aggravating when I do a lot of hatching.

Awesome, that works great! Thanks for your help. As far as why don't I write certain things into my macros, I'm not that smart. I have to rely on people like you. BTW, what is Layer MAKE options?
