Hatch Pattern Stacking Order

Description

The object stacking order of hatch pattern has been changed from previous versions.

Requirements

PowerCADD 8.0.0 or more recent



Old object stacking order (top to bottom):

  • Hatched Pattern (top most object)
  • Object Line Weight and Pen Pattern (middle object)
  • Fill Pattern (bottom most object)

This old stacking order resulted in hatch patterns that covered up the object's line weight.

New object stacking order (top to bottom):

  • Object Line Weight and Pen Pattern (top most object)
  • Hatched Pattern (middle object)
  • Fill Pattern (bottom most object)

This new stacking order results in the objects outline (perimeter line weight) correctly covering the hatched items and creates a cleaner edge to the hatched object. Note: See known issues for additional information regarding hard clipping of hatch patterns.
