Hatches and changing scale

Recommended Posts

The spacing of hatch lines can be in Page units (relative to the printed page, such as .05" spacing for shading) or World units (relative to the real-world object being portrayed, such as 8/3" spacing for brick joints).

Editable by clicking on the word "Hatch" at the bottom of the pull-down list of hatches in the Attributes palette.

Those units always apply to the hatch when first created. For the associative hatches created by the Attributes palette, the units adjust when you change layer scale or re-size the boundary object, to be the same as if you had applied the hatch after the scaling or re-sizing. Non-associative hatches created by the pull-down menu command are really just groups of lines, and they act like any other lines when you change scale or re-size.
