How to switch off hatch previews in AutoCAD 2011? (faster hatch)

A - answer You can disable the interactive hatch previews - e.g. for large drawings or on a slower computer - with the HPQUICKPREVIEW variable. Set it to Off. This will make the hatch command more responsive and faster.

If you want to revert to the original older hatch dialog panel, set the system variable HPDLGMODE to 1.
