How to enable "Ignore Hatch Objects" another question might be why? This Option will make AutoCAD not see each Hatch Lines when running Object Snaps. This can cause performance issues and even lock ups if Video is questionable or even when we have large files. This is because it has to located each line in the Hatch pattern (which there can be a lot of these) and thus put stress on the Video Card and processor and take more memory. This Option allows AutoCAD to ignore these and only look for Objects in the file that are not as intensive.
How to enable "Ignore Hatch Objects"
1.) Go into Options (Right click the Command Line and select Options from the Menu).
2.) Go to the Drafting Tab.
3.) In the lower left make sure ignore hatch objects is on and select OK.
