Improve Drawing Performance

If you are struggling with marginal system resources and wrestling with a large drawing containing an abundance of hatched areas, Autodesk has provided yet another simple little performance trick to help us out.

The system variable, HPQUICKPREVIEW,  controls the automatic preview of a selected hatch pattern as you move the cursor across a closed area.  This is a good idea but unfortunately is known to cause performance issues in large, complex drawings.

Again, it’s a handy tool so don’t turn it off unless… you are experiencing performance issues.  Performance issues?  Is that vague enough?
