Hi, i've got a problem with exporting files from Illustrator to png, and need a little help. When I'm making 100x100 px workspace and trying to export it, it always exports 417x417 px. It happens every time, with every other size of workspace (always comes a lot biggeer). I know it's probably stupid queestion, but I'm beginner and neeed a little help.
Thanks in advance for every response.

You need to check the document DPI and al lthe similar settings liek raster effects DPI or any such settings on the export panles. AI internally entirely works based on inches and wrong DPI settings lead to wrong conversions from its actual measurements to pixel values. since clearly you only want to create a web icon or thumbnail, setting everything to 72 DPI to be compliant  and predictable with the web export features would be the way to go.

"You need to check the document DPI"

Illustrator files don't have a document DPI.
