set line width by layer other than those listed

When setting the width on the Design Director or Layer Manager, it has a pull-down with choices of line width.  How can I enter something different than the choices (and with an additional decimal place)?

If I go to one of the drawing toolbars, right click, and then pick "pen" under the properties dialogue, I can enter a different line width.  But that does not associate it with the layer for by-layer.

Go to the TurboCAD Explorer palette. Expand "Settings", then "Built-In". Go to the "Pen_Widths" section and enter the values you want in the appropriate Value row, then click in a different row/column to set the entry. Open a "New from Scratch" drawing and the new values should be there in either the Design Director or the Property toolbar.
