Does anyone know if there's an easy way to specify use of one pattern file
and/or to update all hatch patterns in a drawing to come from one or the
other (similar to the line files .lin) - either acad.pat or acadiso.pat.
Starting a new drawing works fine, the hatch is basically the scale of
whatever drawing you are doing, but cutting and pasting from other files,
the same hatch shows form both acad.pat and acadiso.pat., so for example the
hatch DOTS could appear to be the same in 2 drawings, but have different
scales of 1.00 and 25.4. We do a lot of metric drawing sets and imperial
drawing sets and it gets sloppy when people try to matchprop hatch not
knowing it may be from the other pattern file. Any help would be great.
