Is it possible the Hatches to not overlap texts when these are created with the hatch dialog, so there is an empty (hole) are where texts are?


In version 8006 we added a new functionality in the bHatch dialog (command).
When the user selects curves using the "Select Closed Curve" button he can also select vdText and vdMtext objects. These will be excluded from the created hatch.
Also a new checkbox has been added to the form like below "Exclude Texts". This checkbox controls the Document's new property BhatchAutoDetectTexts. If this boolean value is true then if the user selects a curve then automatically included texts are being excluded from the created hatch like in the example below.
Note that BhatchAutoDetectTexts is not serializable and is true by default.
Note also that texts and the polyhatch are not connected , therefore if the Text is moved the polyhatch will NOT be updated.
