Option to gray a hatch


We frequently import .dwg's from architects. Usually, RCP's import with every ceiling type (GWB, ACT, paneling, etc) as a hatch. 

When designing our systems, I gray out that RCP (class or layer), and overlay out systems...But then the hatches disappear.


Is there a way to gray-out hatches so they follow the usual protocol of visible and gray without completely disappearing?


The fix is to edit the hatches in that file, but that is incredibly time consuming. 


(If I'm missing a work-around, please point me in the right direction!)

Data Visualizations.

I am on VW2021 and it is one of the greatest tool in vectorworks.

We use it extensively.

We use DV in many cases not to in fact display data but adjust objects attributes while drawing/modeling on design layer.

For example stone hatches tend to slow down computer a lot so we mapped those hatches using DV with simple geometry hatch types and it works really well.
