We previously had troubles with hatch scaling which you fixed with the example Modifier: ExFixHatchScale.js

Unfortunately, we can no longer find this extension on the web site’s “Add On” page. We have the extension
from previous downloads but can not find out where to install it on a Mac running Lion.

Can you please describe how to install this fix on a Mac or provide us with a similar fix for our Mac?

Thank you,

This task depends upon

This fix should no longer be necessary for QCAD 3.1.2 since all hatch scales should be fixed when loading files that were created with older version of QCAD.

If this is not the case, please let me know which hatch pattern is affected or attach or e-mail a file which demonstrates the problem.

Here's a sample with FixHatchScale applied and a sample before FixHatchScale applied. This was done on a PC.

I haven't had time to look into this yet but if FixHatchScale works for you, you can install the script inside your Mac OS X application bundle (right-click on QCAD.app, choose "Show Package Contents". There you can find the scripts folder.
