In creating a two dimensional graphics picture... For thickness of lines and arcs I can use either Thickness, which is relative to the size of the picture, or AbsoluteThickness, which is more or less an absolute size, I guess probably related to pixel size on any particular screen. What I need is neither of these -- I need a way to specify thickness relative to the units I am using. For example, if I have (among other polygons and stuff) a square: Polygon[{{0,0}, {1,0}, {1,1}, {0,1}}] and a line of thickness 1/4, then I want the line to have thickness 1/4 of the side of the square. I really can't see any way to achieve this. This is very basic, and so I would suppose that this has come up before, but I didn't see it when I searched the archives. Please email me if you would be so kind. Will Self wself at msubillings.edu
