Thank you for your help.
Unfortunately it did not work. I can't find any other hatch by name or
any by searching the .pat extension.
I can't even find the acad.pat file.
I'm running ACAD2004.
Thank you again.
What version of Windows are you using? If you can hatch, then there have to
be *.pat files on your system. Have you looked in the appropriate subfolder
of the Windows \ Documents and Settings folder? That's where they end up
with later versions of Windows (i.e., XP).
I have no idea why the Windows Search function wouldn't find them for you.
WIndows 2000 and Xp will by default "hide system files"...in
explorer>tools>folder options>view tab select "show hidden files and
folders, then OK.
You are looking for
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD
C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2004\UserDataCache\Support\acad.pat
Thats the default hatch file.
