Q - question

Why is hatch 25.4 times bigger/smaller on one computer?

A - answer The MEASUREMENT variable is probably set differently. This variable controls whether AutoCAD uses the ISO/metric (1) or standard/imperial inches (0) files - ACAD.LIN/ACADISO.LIN and ACAD.PAT/ACADISO.PAT. Imperial (inches) and metric files differ in the 25.4 ratio.

When you change this variable, update the hatch by changing any of its properties (Ctrl+1) or by MATCHPROP.
