Hi -

Just wondering if you resolved this issue? I have the same things with hatches looking perfect on my screen on the sheet layer, but when I publish to PDF they have been scaled considerably and look completely different.


I can't find what setting is affecting it

Having same issues.  And when using the Advance Properties in the Object Info pallet to increase the hatch scale in different scale viewports I see no different until I delete the viewport & hit undo, then it comes back in as selected in the Advance settings. But sometimes get completely different hatch scale in PDFs.

Hi All,

Just spoke to my Vectorworks Tech Service Support. The problem seems to be with the local mapping - if you're making adjustments, they show on the sheet layer, but revert in the PDF. I have been told that a fix should be coming with SP3. The other tip I was shown is if you right click on the hatch in question, the second last option says 'New Hatch from Locally Mapped Hatch'. Save it as new hatch with the scale attributes that your happy with. (hot tip, if you then delete the resource with the scale mapping you dont want you can replace all with the new one you just made) - PDF should then reflect your sheet layer.


SP3 is suppose to be out in a couple of days, but if your slow to update, or still having troubles, this option is good to create new favourites that don't need to be remapped.
