I made saved views from autocad details that are fully exploded and are all 2d elements.  The file saves fine and i can open it.  But i can't insert the view into my projects in Revit 2011.  Are there compatibilty issues with Cad hatch regions or too many lines? can't find anything on-line...please help!

What do you mean "...I made saved views from autocad details..." ?   if the deatils ar part of a larger file, you should wblock them out with a new origin point - somewhere close to your linework. 

 

Don't explode CAD hatch patterns because that will result in a great number of lines.  Instead, clead up the CAD import in a scrap Revit project changing your linework to your standards and the hatches too.

Yes i cleaned up the Cad file in a Revit Drafting view, then 'saved the new file' so i can insert it into multiple projects.  the hatch patterns are not exploded. seems to be clean.  Perhaps the linetypes from CAD are not allowing it to import?

No - linetypes are never an issue. 

Whoa.... you said "...I made saved views from autocad details..." - I was assuming you meant CAD imports and now you clarify that you have already done that in a drafting view.... I now see what you are doing....

 

You don't need, nor should you, save these details in separate files.  They can, should, all be in one file - just separate views.  We organize these 2D details in projects that are named for their type like a door and windows detail file.  Then you use the insert tab / insert from file / insert views from file ... and pick your holding file then the selected views. << For now just use this process with your single detail projects.
