How can I control whether hatch is shown in different wall components in plan?


The hatch will normally be controlled by the material assigned to the component.


Go to AEC -> AEC Style Manager. Select Multi-purpose Objects -> Material Definitions -> Material (where Material is the material definition to change)


Click General then Properties and choose the ‘Layer/Color/Linetype’ tab. Click the ‘Yes (or No) to the right of ‘Plan Hatch’ and at the top of the column choose change the yes to no (or no to yes to switch it on). Click Apply then Close. Finally click Close again to return to the drawing.


Regen the modelspace and the hatch should now be switched off (or on) in that component.
