I crosschecked that on my machine and didn't find any problems. What is your service pack and software version?
I am using SW2007 SP2.2. I suspect I am not "hatching" correctly with a solid fill. Could you outline the steps you performed to crosscheck that hatching with a solid exported to .pdf fomrat properly?
Thanks a lot,
I have checked with both the option i.e. region and Boundary and in both the cases it is working perfectly.
In both the cases I have selected the entities by window selection and crtl-diselected the circle. Then selected the hatch type as solid and it worked fine.
Thanks we will try to reproduce your steps.
Thanks for the help,
I am using SW2014 SP1.0 and am running into the same problem. Despite identical solid black hatching methods (as far as I can tell), some views export with the solid remaining solid black, others export with the hatch solid white.
This is a known bug that solid hatches don't always print or export to a pdf as such, and has unfortunately been known to solidworks for a few years at least without them doing anything about it. below is the workaround. I used a hatch scale of 20 which was sufficient for printing as solid, much more is probably overkill and in fact when I tried a scale of 500 it took a long time for the PDF to load after scrolling or zooming.
Workaround is to use a non solid hatch with a high value for
hatch pattern scale. This will appear solid in PDF.
DS SolidWorks does not guarantee that this SPR fix will be available
in the indicated future release of the product since at this time the SPR
fix has not completed QA procedures that incorporate all SPR fixes and
enhancements into a new version of our product.
If the "Solid" option does not work, you can always use the "Hatch" and set the pattern scale to something so high it is not discernible, and shows as solid.
Same issues over here. Just wanted to reply, going to try Howie's suggestion and I'll provide an update when possible.
