Tip : Fix Scrambled Hatch

Complex hatch patterns may appear scrambled and do not display and plot properly. This problem occurs when your origin is too far from the 0,0 origin of the current coordinate system and the round-off error in calculations performed between the hatch origin and hatch location can progressively lose the relationship between individual elements.

The difference in hatch pattern according to the increase in co-ordinate values are shown below.

Solution :
        You can even fix the existing patterns by the HATCHEDIT (HE) command or double-click on the existing pattern, and when the hatch dialog appears, set hatch origin closer to the hatched entity and the existing hatch pattern will be fixed.
