Reduce hatch scale in drawings

Since the last update, it is possible to customize the hatching shown in section views. Thank you, Onshape!

It does seem however that the scaling is a little off. For several of the custom hatch options, the minimum scale is still too large to accurately display the hatch. Here, an example of both the "Wood" and "Insulation" hatches:

At least in this case, it seems like the patterns could use a 1/10 size reduction.

    @brooke_spreen Have you tried simply typing in a smaller value?  Most of our drawing dialogs that have sized (ie. drawing scale) you can type whatever you want.

    Ha, I had not. Assumed one of the listed options had to be selected. Thank you!

    The best solution! Didn't find this anywhere in the documentation. I too assumed you had to choose from the dropdown!
