From a QCAD user:
A file loads / displays very slowly because of very dense hatch patterns. What can I do?

Selecting all Hatches

View > Selection Filter
Entity Type: Hatch
Click the button on the left to select all hatches:

All hatches in the main drawing are now selected.

Fixing the Hatch Scale

You can now for example move all hatches to a layer to easily hide them, delete the hatches or change the hatch scale of all hatches with the property editor:

View > Property Editor
Change Scale to 1
