Situation:

An exposed wall END needs a bit of painting.

The painting hatch pattern happens to have vertical lines (could be parallel lines, or Crosshatched Horz/Vert, eg, tile pattern).

You paint the wall and automatically a vertical hatch pattern line aligns itself to the wall centerline. (Not good for example if the wall is 90mm thick and your hatch pattern is 300mm x 300mm)

You try the align tool to move the pattern line - No good, it moves the wall (align tool cant pick the hatch pattern line in this situation)

You try the modify line tool to paint it 'invisible' - no good - cant select it either.

For elevation views - you can fudge it by drawing an invisible (white) drafting line over the offending hatch pattern line - but this does not help in 3D & perspective camera views...

So:

Anyone figured out if its possible to unalign vertical model hatch patterns from wall ends - or is this just not possible? It has been annoying for years, and still seems to be a bug of 2012.

Appreciate any insights if there is a solution.

I was able to do this on a wall end by drawing a reference plane in an elevation view then 'aligning' the vertical pattern to the reference line. You can also 'rotate' the pattern. You cannot nudge or move it however, like on a wall face.

 

It is interesting because on the wall face you can nudge / move the hatch pattern but not on the wall 'end' face.

 

You can use 'tab' to select one of the hatch pattern lines. Then do the action and the entire pattern updates.

Thanks dgcad,

Such a simple (and yet bizarre) solution. It seems drawing the REFERENCE PLANE to use as the element to align to, works as you say. It did get me thinking, so just for interest I tried drawing a DRAFTING line - and that also worked. Feel like a bit of an idiot not trying these ideas previously - but main thing is now I know how to do it - so thanks alot.

Seems that Revit is just unable to deal with aligning pattern lines to model objects when its this 'end of wall pattern' situation.
