Doc1 produced AFP using GOCA pattern fills looks awful in Vault, both in the GIF mode and when rendered to PDF.  What can I do about this?

One solution is to go back to Doc1 and try to find a shade that looks optimal.

However if this is not feasible. builds/6.1M0p0132 has a new profile.ini setting that can swap out Goca patterns in the document with RGB colors.
 
Basically when the AFP sets a pattern symbol for fill
 
2804 GSPT Set Pattern Symbol
 
Vault will look for the corresponding profile setting GocaMapPattern<N> for a colour to replace it with. The value of N is between 1 to 15. 

In the case that prompted this the AFP  sets pattern 4 so it looks for the setting GocaMapPattern4=<colour>.
 
By default it renders the pattern as before. 
 
The colour is a hex RGB value. Note that you can choose to map it to a grey like 808080 or to a colour like green 80E080.
 
There is still some artifacting in bitmap output but much less when compared with pattern fills.

i.e.,

[someprofile]
GocaMapPattern4=808080 turns the pattern fill to a nice gray.
