Inside The Hatch Command
"When hatching, AutoCAD attaches the boundary to the hatch pattern. I have to explode the hatching in order to do anything to the boundary, but then of course the hatching becomes individual segments. Only one of our workstations has this problem. Is there a setting that makes this happen?"

Autocad 2004 Customization Tutorial: Custom Hatch Patterns, Part 1
Autocad 2004 Customization Tutorial: Custom Hatch Patterns, Part 1
Hatch patterns are defined within text files. There are two default hatch pattern files, acad.pat and acadiso.pat. The files are used for Imperial and Metric drawings respectively. You can add your custom hatch pattern definition to any of these files or define a custom hatch pattern (PAT) file. Every custom pattern file can define a single hatch pattern. The name of hatch pattern file should be similar to the name of the pattern.

Use hatching to pattern fill areas of your drawing. Hatching is used to add shaded patterns to objects and shapes within an Autocad drawing. Hatch patterns can be used to indicate a material to be used, such as a concrete hatch. Alternatively it could be used to make an area of a drawing stand out.

Creating A Hatch Pattern, Part 1
When Autodesk first introduced hatch patterns to AutoCAD (more than ten years ago in v1.4), the hatch pattern was consisted of three elements: dashes, gaps, and dots. To create a repeating pattern, the pattern definition specifies an offset and angle. During the intervening decade, the only change made by Autodesk was the addition of associativity to Release 13; change the boundary and the pattern automatically updates itself.
