HOW TO MAKE HATCH/FILL MOVE W/ DIM CHANGE

N/A

This is a similar question to the thread on text box and dimension change that I
just entered today. But this envolves a hatch or fill inside of the same rectange.
When I change the dimension, sometimes the hatch doesn't fill up the rectangle
anymore. Other times it stays with the size change.
Why?
Thanks,
Ron

Ron,
Fill is associative to the closed shape that initially defines the fill. If
you have maintain relationships enabled, it acts much better. Fill also has
a handle point that is used to define the area for the fill. You can drag
the handle yo force the fill to recompute based on the updated geometry. If
you delete geometry that bounds the fill, it becomed non-associative. For
example draw a rectangle. Place a fill. Delete one of the lines of the
rectangle. The fill no longer has closed bounding geometry so it maintains
its current shape. If you add the line back in. Simply drag the handle to
make it associative to the geometry again.
