Line Thickness

Question

Basic question:  I am trying to customize the line thickness in our template file.  What does Mils mean?  (Thousand of an inch?)  If so - does that mean a value of 1 is equivalent to 1/1000th of an inch?   Also can we have more than just 10 pens?

@benboggs- Yes, 1 Mil is equal to 0.001 of an inch. 

 

If you define your line thicknesses by their Class Properties you can have as many line thicknesses as you want, you just have to select the 'Set Thickness...' option.

True.  But I was just wondering if we could add more pens to select from in the Attributes window.  Thanks!

Those can be edited under Tools > Options > Line Thickness. You don't need to use Mils, I think that's just the default unit for some. You can't add more to that list that are currently included, but you can replace the defaults with your own desired thicknesses.
