FS#1468 - Custom patterns are not selectable from qcad


I added a new custom pattern into patterns/metric folder
However, even after restarting QCAD, new pattern is not showing in hatch dialog.

Caused by an error in the pattern file.

Please attach both the drawing file (.DXF or .DWG) and the pattern file (.PAT).
Your drawing might not use metric resources or there might be an issue with your pattern file.

I have attached the test file. As you will see the drawing is in metric.
The pat file is stored in
Just in case, I have also copied in imperial folder but the result is the same

The pattern file contains an unexpected control character on the last line (0x1A, Substitute). If you delete that last line, it will load correctly (see attached).
