Hi,

without the original file it is hard to find the cause of the problem. However, two hints:

If you use px as unit for your overall design than you better stick to it when defining the line width. pt is a typographic unit. Its actual representation in px depends on the document settings.

In Illustrator you used a rectangle while you used the rounded rectangle in Designer. This might explain differences as well.

Best, V.

What "Type" and "Page Preset" did you specify when creating each of those documents?

The 32x32 file is 72 DPI, but the 64x64 file is 300 DPI.

I think you're seeing two things happening:

  1. Your strokes are aligned to center, which means that 1/2 of the stroke lies outside the artboard and is hidden. If you change the alignment to inside you will see the complete stroke.
  2. As @VolkerMB said, points are a typographic unit, with an absolute size defined as 1⁄72 of an international inch (about 0.353 mm). Mixing point and pixel measurements can give unexpected (but correct, I think) results, especially when the document DPI is different. In this case, you have a 2pt stroke in both documents. A 2pt stroke at 72 DPI will be 2px, too. But a 2pt stroke at 300 dpi will be 8.3px (2 * (300/72)).

There's a Preferences setting, under User Interface, that controls the dimensions shown for lines. It's more obvious what's happening in your files if that option is off, I think, so that lines are shown in the document units rather than in points:
