I just recently updated DataCAD to V.12.06.00.20, and am now experiencing problems with hatching. I am now getting an outline everytime I try to hatch something (associative or not). I know how to turn it off manually after the fact, but before the update it was creating the hatch and not displaying the outline. Another computer in our office has not been updated for a while and is currently at V.12.04.01.02, and hatches without applying the boundary like we are used to. Any ideas on how to get this to STAY OFF unless i turn it on manually? Thanks!
If you go to Hatch/Hatch Type and toggle on No Outline before hatching, then that should do it. If you do associative hatch, and then you toggle it to No Outline, you can then just re-hatch it.
BTW, there is nothing you cannot do with associative hatch -- so why ever use non-associative?
