Q - question

Extract hatch patterns to PAT files - copy hatches between DWGs.

A - answer The free LISP utility by CAD Studio - PatOut - can generate hatch pattern definition files in the .PAT format from your DWG drawings. Any selected hatch will be converted to a separate PAT file with the hatch definition. So you transfer hatch patterns between drawings - simply reuse the PAT in the new drawing.

You can download PatOut from - load it with APPLOAD and start the PatOut command (see also SW Development).

For linetypes use LinOut.
