Hatch Scaling

Question

This might be a basic one but a question about hatches;

 

I am using a hatch on a plot file at 1:500 and then the same hatch on a plot file at 1:50 which I would like to scale according to world units.

It has been assigned to separate classes in their appropriate class plot files that I reference in to determine the output of all linework.

However the hatch is not adjusting itself according to 'world units' depending on the output plot file/ sheet scale. The hatch is perfect for use on 1:500 but on my 1:50 the hatch scale is much too large.

What am I doing wrong here?

So the hatch is definitely set to world based and not page based?

Yes, definitely. 

I have tried re-referencing everything but it's still enlarging itself on the different scale. 

I have just created a duplicate but will need to find out what is not working later.

If you use viewports to place your drawings on sheet layers, you can edit the viewport to scale up lines and hatches specifically to that scale.  It's under advanced properties at the bottom when you click to open a viewport.  I have some standard viewports because we go back and forth from 100, 200 and 30 scales.  I have used the line weight scale factor but haven't yet fiddled with the hatch settings.
