SOME IDIOT!!!... (probably me...) somehow set "Rattan" to a scale value of 1. Every time I roll over that pattern in the list it takes 20 seconds to load the thumbnail and then locks up the computer. I lose data since last saved, it's a whole thing. Anyway, is there a way I can change the scale of "rattan" without selecting it in the patterns list? I tried to do it in the "manage" window, but the same problem there. It just locks up the computer.
I thought the setting might be in the dcadwin.pat.ini file in the support files folder .... but a quick test has failed to confirm that (i.e. changing the scale of a hatch does not appear to update this file).

Can you set the hatch scale for the pattern without scrolling over it? Although I'm sure everybody is used to using the cursor to select hatches, it should be possible to select it using the function keys without displaying the hatch in the preview window .... I can do this by pressing Shift/F1 from the hatch menu and then selecting the pattern itself also using the function keys (including Shift/F7 or Shift/F8 to scroll the list if required). Once you've set Rattan as the current hatch you should be able to change the scale?
