Hello,

if you limit e- step by ~1 um, this is fine for most of G4 models, the only drawback will be more CPU due to increased number of simulation steps. The most sensitive model to the step limit is the default model of energy loss fluctuations but 1 um seems to be still acceptable step limit in solid or liquid media.
