Making custom fill patterns available
« on: March 10, 2017, 08:51:32 AM »
I draw a lot of blueprints for work. I know how to make a custom fill pattern but my question is how do I make that fill pattern available to all of my drawings. For instance, I made a fill pattern for concrete while I was in one drawing. I opened up a new drawing and now I want to use the concrete pattern but it is not there.

But that pattern availible only in single document ! You can add that pattern in stencil, if you open stencil in common with other documents. That pattern will availible there too

I advice to you add your custom fill pattern to stencil. Just open this stencil with some documents https://youtu.be/feLCPsu4ITU

That I have already done. I have done it before and added shingles to a fill pattern and I can use this pattern on any of my drawings, but I can not remember for the life of me how I did it.
