Q - question

My AutoCAD does not display solid hatches and fills.

A - answer If your DWG drawing doesn't show solid hatches and fills in plan views, first of all check the FILLMODE variable.

If this variable is On and if other hatch types are displayed properly, the possible cause of this problem can be the visual style with hidden lines which you may have set inadvertently (see VISUALSTYLES or SHADEMODE).

To go to the plan view - in an unlocked Viewport type "PLAN" at the command line, select WORLD, hit Enter.

Another cause may be an incompatible graphics card or its driver.
