Create Annotative Hatches

Use an annotative hatch to symbolically represent material such as sand, concrete, steel, earth, etc.

An annotative hatch is defined at a paper size. You can create individual annotative hatch objects as well as annotative hatch patterns.

Annotative hatch patterns (stored in the acad.pat file) create annotative hatch objects. When you select an annotative hatch pattern in the Hatch and Gradient dialog box, the Annotative check box is selected automatically.

The orientation of annotative hatches always matches the orientation of the layout.
