Hello Ashish:

 

In the draft, you can hide edges and replace them with a block of the dowel symbol.

Hi Ashish:

  

Here's how the removed edges replaced by a dowel pin symbol will look like (see attached):

Let me know if the output is OK for you; this is not something that I have practiced, but only an idea that came to mind. I will make the video and post shortly. I have ST 9 beta on this PC and don't think can post a video using it for another week. I will access another PC with ST 8 to make the video.

If i understand correctly. all you to do is go in backgound and hatch the hole. draw lines for the area to hatch. this is the only way i know how

This approach by @TDB is a much cleaner and practical one.

As I said I have never practised it but just an idea that occurred to me.

Siemens is once again behind the curve on this. They should provide the proper symbology in SE like cousin SW.

The advantage with this method is the symbol will scale with the view.

Booo, Bruce!

SW only has that function for hole wizzard holes. Otherwise the manual option is the same thing- a fancy sketch that is "attached" to the hole diameter.

? Hole wizard holes would be good enough. Certainly better than nothing. We're talking about holes, right? Well, we're talking about pins too, but the machinist is concerned about hole placement.
