For architectural drawings I usually print out to 24x36 pdf which are emailed to the printshop for paper copies printing. It seems that when I use a hatch from a bitmap, the weight of the lines in the hatch are not as they finally appear in the pdf - far too heavy, unuseable when a detail is a larger scale and unpredictable for me. The bitmap hatch looks Ok in model space and paper space, it is just when it is printed to the pdf that the problem occurs. I am using the defaults that come in with the TCAD architectural template for all styles and place the hatch on layer 0. When I use vector hatches I do not have this problem - they print to pdf as they appear in model or paper space. Also the bitmap hatches print to my little Canon printer here just fine as do the vector ones.
What setting am I missing here to get predictable consistency when using both bitmap and vector hatches with a pdf output?
