Hi, I've been working on a 2D drawing of representations of railway vehicle works plates, to get them etched in brass, and obviously these involve text, and borders to (mostly) rectangular boxes. In TC2018 deluxe (Win 10 64 bit), I can do this, as long as I only have a little bit of text in the box, but when I add the full amount (more than about 27 letters) it just stops working, and ignores the command. I remove the additional text, and the hatch will now work. Its not that there's anything wrong with the text (exploded and converted to polylines) because I have tried each block of text separately and it works fine, it just can't seem to cope with the amount I have. Its not about the total number of items in the drawing, just the number in each hatch area.
Could this be related to the graphics performance of my PC? Its only got the onboard graphics, but this copes OK with 4K video on a 4K monitor, so it can't be all that bad. The PC is an Intel i7 4770K with 32GB of very respectable RAM, and runs SSDs, so is quite snappy.
Any ideas? I only bought TC 2018 because of its alleged improved performance on internal pick point hatching, but so far its a total failure, with worse performance, not better. Drawings that worked OK before, no longer work.
I can't find any settings in TC to divert more resources to TC when processing. Any clues?
