FS#1294 - Hatches scale differently now from earlier releases

Something with hatching changed between 3.10 and 3.12; Changelog for 3.11.2 states: “Add support for hatch patterns defined per entity”. That may be?

Attached drawing from an older version; open in current and see a black box where there should be earth. Change scaling of hatch from 10 to 254 and it will be exactly the same it was when saving the file.

Curiously, that is like swapping inches and mm? Looking into prefs, there is a new drop down: “Messsytem für Linien und Schraffuren” and it read “imperial”; making it metric and bingo, my drawing looks as intended!

This is bad, because each drawing has to be changed! I changed the application default drawing setting to metric and the existing drawing still had imperial set…

Probably a heuristic was on order? If the drawing does not specify the new setting, and the drawing units is metric, use metric?

Besides, when saving to R15 dxflib (free only has this?), the setting remains "metric" but the hatch is wrong anyways. Only saving to teigha will make the change carry over a save / load cycle.

Affects drawings created with dxflib which lack MEASUREMENT variable and are metric.
