I'd like to invite you to join us for our next AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT Hangout Session. This week we will cover the fundamentals of working with blocks! If you have been using blocks but only have a minor understanding of defining a block or you wish to just wish to learn more, then join us! For more information check out
Would you like to be a part of the team that gets to Beta test AutoCAD and help shape what future releases look like?
In response to the customer feedback for 2015 products, the AutoCAD team is working on the Service Pack to address some of the items customers are reporting. If you would like to get an early preview of this Service Pack, please sign up with our beta site here.
Additionally, if you would like to be a part of the group that gets full releases of AutoCAD early, you can do that here.
Are you noticing that in AutoCAD 2015, the linetypes that you have set on your hatch are showing as continuous? If this is the case, you may need to change the HPLINETYPE variable. By default, this variable is off to save on system resources. But one of the side effects of it being off is that hatch linetypes will not be displayed. Turn the HPLINETYPE variable to 1, and all should show correctly again.
When running AutoCAD for Mac 2013 or earlier as well as AutoCAD for Windows in a virtual machine on the high resolution retina display, the display may not appear as expected.
AutoCAD for Mac 2014 has added support for Retina Display. On Windows side, we are actively researching solutions not only for Virtual Machines on Mac, but also for newly exposed DPI options in Windows 8.1.
In the meantime if you are using a virtual machine i.e., Parallels desktop to run AutoCAD for Windows you may want to try the following solution to see if it helps:
Shut down your virtual machine
Go to Virtual machine menu > Configure... > Hardware > Video > uncheck Enable Retina display
