I would like to see the actual design size, but i found it is not possible. if i keep the 100% zoom even though it is not correct. For instance if i have taken 3 cm width & 8 cm height : like to see the actual print size. is it possible or any idea. I am getting the exact size only when i have a print.
Thank u anand, Its working but the when i choose 100% zoom it is displaying only 71% but when scaled the object the measurement is ok. What could be the problem.
I also have observed this but am not really able to figure out WHY. In fact it should show the zoom level as 100% and an "*" to indicate that its a customised ruler calibration.

Level – 100%
Zoom Level to 100% is zooming To Page (Shift+F4). But if you enable the
"Zoom Relative 1:1" option (above the Calibrate Rulers button), then Zoom to 100% will zoom
1:1 (Actual Size).
there is a "zoom 1:1" command to which you can assign a
keyboard shortcut, or put it on any Toolbar or Context Menu (right click menu).
zooms to actual size (3x3cm object occupies 3x3cm on monitor) whether or not
the "Zoom Relative 1:1" option was enabled.
1:1 and Web Design
designing for web, I
Then if I zoom
1:1, the 70x70 pixel object occupies 70x70 pexel on monitor, and I can preview my
work in actual size and almost as it will be when exported to bitmap.
I assigned F5
key to zoom 1:1. So, from any zoom level, when I need to preview my work, I just
press F4 (Zoom to Fit All) then F5 (zoom 1:1) and surly without
pressing F9; because it changes the zoom level.
Thanks to Os;
I can maximize the Work Area to work and preview without pressing F9. >>details
Simplest Zoom Trick ever (I know its stupid)
1. Get an A4 Paper
2. Maximize your Window
3. Set Document size to A4
4. Set your zoom level to match the A4 border to the real A4 paper
5. Get a note of the zoom level, use it always (on some screens is 68%, on other its 73%, so no rules)
Indeed, Simplest Zoom Trick ever!
