Hatch rotation problem

Paopao

Hi there,
I am drawing a plan in 2D (simple lines) and I am trying to fill the waterproofing hatch perpendicular to the wall but I can't set it using the handle. I have even rotate the hatch of 90° and reshaped the fill but lines remain vertical.

Here is a pic of the problem, as you can see the hatch on the vertical wall is parallele not perpendicular to the respective wall (as it is on the horizontal wall above). Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks

I have no problems rotating fills here.
You will need a separate fill for each wall.

Sorry, I think I misunderstood the question. This answer is for the case where you are using composite walls.

Interesting Barry, I can't do that somehow. I fear I will have to reinstall AC 😞

Check View > On Screen View Options > Vectorial Hatching.

Make sure it is turned on. The bitmap fills (an option for computers with very poor GPU I think) don't follow the rotations.

Also in the 'On Screen View Options' there will be an option to show/hide fill handles.
If hidden the rotation handle will only show when you select the fill.
It won't print at all so I leave it showing all the time.

Archicad is not what I would call a good 2D CAD program.
The idea is that you model in 3D (or in 2D but using the 3D tools) and it will produce the 2D plans you want.
As well as the elevations and sections.
Placing a wall is much easier than drawing lines, trimming and adding fills.
