How do you add hatch patterns into dcad? I have some older hatch patterns from cheap tricks. How do you load them, to what folder and what is the extension. I recall a PAT file and I see there is a Hatch folder with .DHP extension in a different format that the PAT file. What files/ folder is dcad using and how do I place them and or convert the format/extension easily. Thanks! I was looking in the Programs folder/Datacad. Still using Dcad 11 even though I have one key of 12.
If I recall correctly, if you copy the .pat file into the Datacad's Support Files\Hatch Patterns Directory. Then in DataCad, goto Hatch/Manage at the bottom of the dialog box select Convert and enter the .pat file name.
