How to align flooded hatch patterns
To use a flooded a hatch pattern is often the fastst way to hatch an area but when hatching several areas at the same time the hatch pattern will not automatically align.
In MicroStation V8i you cannot align multiple flooded hatch patterns when you place them, this has to be done afterwards.
To complicate things further aligning multiple flooded hatch patterns has to be done one flooded hatch pattern at the time.
In MicroStation CONNECT Edition this has been made easier as you can align the flooded hatch patterns when you place them.
Annotate > Hatch Tool (Flooded) > Press Ctrl + Shift > Select the areas to flood.
