Herbert, I've tried several times loading the hatch file into the dchatch.sys from notepad and it still is not showing up in the hatch pull down. And the drawing that has the new stone pattern reverts back to the "solid hatch pattern". The last time I tried loading it, I also added it to DCHATCHC.SYS file. Now it is in both files. Is that redundant?,...wrong?,...not good?, or what?
Also, I don't quite understand your "squares idea"? Thanks, for your help.
