 The stroke tool does not seem to work. As you can see, it is set to 1 pt but looks to be 1 inch. (The gold box is about 4” wide. Is there a way to fix that?

Thanks for your reply.   No, that is not the problem. Like I said.  the box itself is 4" wide. That means the stroke is about 1" wide even though I have it set to 1pt.

It would be easier to check what's wrong when we can see the file/problem part.

Can you share the .ai file (CC filesharing, Dropbox, Google, WeTransfer...)?

it looks like your rectangle might be 4 points wide, not 4 inches.

 

select the rectangle and show us the "transform panel" that indicates the height/width/x/y parameters.

 

My guess is that your document ruler units is points, and when you created the rectangle you typed "4" so it created a rectangle 4 points wide. if you type "4 inches" into the width input box, does the box change size?
