hatches in worksheets


I am trying to add a worksheet with hatches in the images column so I can ad a description of it in the following cells.

I placed the worksheet on the design layer and I am using hardscapes with hatches as the fill.

The worksheet does not scale the hatch correctly and seems to show it at 1:1 scale in the worksheet cell instead of showing it at the layer scale.

Any help is appreciated

The reason for this is WORLD based hatches. These hatches are intended to scale as the layer/viewport scale changes, which is actually what you want for accurate paver hatches.


Are you overlaying an object with the hatch over the top of the worksheet? If so, then place the worksheet and objects within the Viewport Annotations. The worksheet will not scale since it is a page based object, while the hatch objects will display the hatch at the same scale as the drawing.

Thank you Eric

We had scaled the hatches using local mapping and this was part of the problem


We scaled the hatches in the hatch edit dialog box and used world units and all is well-
