Here is my dilema:

I applied a custom brick hatch to a wall I created and when I dropped the brick layer down 2" to rest on the brick seat below the hatch remained with its origon at the level of which the walls was inserted - resulting in a half brick at the bottom. I fixed this by adjusting my hatch to start at -2" inches. This works but seems like just a bandaid and not the correct way to do it.

My question is there away to apply a hatch so that the origin is at the base of the face it is applied to. That would work with the adjustment of the layer it is applied?

You can align hatches with the Align tool.  Just click on a reference (in your case, the base of the building) then on a line on the hatch.

I have the same issue with a hatch for batt insulation in my exterior wall type.  The hatch is all curves, and there seem to be no lines to snap to with the align tool.  How can I control the base point of this hatch so it snakes its way up the wall cavity like it's supposed to?

Batt hatches will not "snake".  They are straight line only.  That is because they are not a hatch but a repeating detail.

I understand that.  Any workaround?  Those of you who use hatches in walls as a "cut pattern" for your material type - how do you handle aligning the hatch in your sections?  I'd really rather not go over it with a filled region everywhere it appears in the set...

All model patters can be aligned.  Drafting patterns can not be.

 

If you notice that when you assign a material cut pattern, only drafting patterns are available.  Also note that if you edit a drafting pattern, you do have three pattern control options. 

  1. Orient to view
  2. Keep readable
  3. Align with element.

Read this topic to your HELP to understand these settings.  It has samples.  Fill Pattern Host Orientation

 

Repeating detail elements like batt are drawn from the detail origin.  For batt, that is the center.  For wall that have various thicknesses, we simple use different thickness batt symbols and don't connect them.
