Do you mean stroke thickness?

I found if I switched the unit in settings from Points to Pixels it then let me do something like 0.5 in the stroke. Now it also lets me use a smaller number even if units are set to Points.

I cant do diiferent stroke then this, if i try to put 0,5 or 0,2 its transparent. Its really flustrating due to horrible client help desk experience. I keep asking for this problem on chat, i got the biggest amount of lies and empty words i have ever experience. This is hoorible way to treat clients. Its been a month, nobody cares that my illustrator is useless. Horrible horrible

I have found a workaround for this limitation in the software.

If I need a stroke thickness of 0.1, I set the stroke to 1.

then comes the trick:

I select everything and enlarge the whole graphic, including all objects, and make it 10 times bigger.

Then I change the stroke from 10 to 1.

Finally I reduce the whole graphic to the original size.

Stroke should now be 0.1.

It works if you type .5 in Properties.
