Re: Wall Component Hatch changes
There are a couple of reasons why the hatch could be appearing as solid. Either it is too sparse (so that no linework would appear in the hatched area) or it is too dense (so that it is almost solid anyway). In the first case, set HPMAXAREAS to zero, and you'll get the blank space back again. Note that this variable was introduced in AutoCAD 2013. In prior versions, if the hatch is very sparse, you'll need to make it a little more dense so at least some linework appears in the hatched area. In the second case, increase the value for HPMAXLINES. Note that the maximum is 10,000,000 (though you can't use commas when entering the value). If you're already at 10,000,000, then you'll need to make the hatch scale a bit larger.
Hope this helps. Bill
