Having watched the quick Vimeo tutorial I have to wonder how an image can be truly representative of the size, since although the software can determine your actual working system resolution, how can it know your screen ppi? Have I missed or misconstrued the point or is this a real matter?

Hi @Gavinr,

 

When you set the zoom to "Actual Size" it would read the DPI from the document settings. Change the DPI and the actual zoom would change accordingly. You can also see this happening if you have the rulers turned on. 

 

Thanks,

Gabe.

Hi Gavinr,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Affinity apps are aware of the physical screen's ppi to be able to match the size of the physical document on screen when you select Actual Size (from the View menu). This information is provided by the OS.
