I've received many pictures since I've arrived home from Autodesk University. Here's one that was taken at the Swan hotel with a few fellow AU attendees...Matt Sawhill, Joe Schmitz and my extra close buddy, AE extraordinaire - Mike Jolicoeur.
As you can tell we were having a great time! Now on to your Hip Tip...
Setting to tell your object snaps to ignore hatch patterns:
Doesn't it drive you crazy when your osnaps keep grabbing your hatch patterns instead of the desired geometry? Let's face it - how often do you really need to snap to a hatch pattern (never?). The OPTIONS command (Drafting tab) allows you to tell AutoCAD to ignore your hatch patterns when you're using an object snap as seen below.
It's that simple! Are you ready for the Holidays yet?
