Inkscape stroke hardly visible when it’s too thin

I have the last version of inkscape but I have a problem. With my laser cutter I need strokes with a thickness of 0,01. But whenever I change the thickness of a shape or line to this value, the stroke is so thin that I can’t see it unless I zoom in really close. With an old version of Inkscape I didn’t have the problem. I’m sure there is something to do in the parameters but I don’t know how to do this and I don’t find anything on internet.
Does someone have a solution please?
Many thanks


If you set the display mode to outline by clicking View > Display Mode > Outline, you will be able to see the outline no matter what zoom level you have set. Outline mode shows all paths as simple outlines, whether they have a stroke/fill applied or not.

This could be useful in many kinds of situations where you just want to see the paths without the confusion of strokes/fills.

You can toggle the display modes in Inkscape using CTRL+5 – that’s 5 on the number pad.
