Problem with hatch scale: can't make it small enough

HI,

I am hitting a problem with hatch scale:

I need one of the fills smaller than I can set it in the hatch scale > 0.0011

That is because I started drawing plans in 1:100/50 and everything worked fine, but now I need Details in 1:5 or 1:1

I can’t solve it by changing the global hatch scaling, because all other plans that are already drawn would be affected.

does anyone know a way to change the scale of a pattern in a .pat file or is there a way to do this in Rhino, and recreate the pat file at a smaller scale?

thanks,
Daniel

Lucky me, I found the hatch in question scaled down, I post it here for reference:
