Q - question

Streaks in solid hatch fill in AutoCAD PDF files.

A - answer Solid fills in AutoCAD drawings publihed to PDF files may contain visual artifacts (random lines) when viewed on a screen.

This behavior can appear with any AutoCAD version, any PDF driver (both free/shareware and AutoCAD internal driver), any PDF viewer.

We recommend to use the AutoCAD internal PDF driver (available in current AutoCAD versions). You may increase its resolution/precision setting. You can also consider using the DWF publishing format.

In any case this is only a display problem - solid fills are plotted and printed without streaks.
