Hello, WR-L-ers,

Iâve got his lovely giant 30â monitor now, which is great for viewing a full doc page at 100% (and even larger). But somethingâs puzzling: both Wordâs 100% and Acrobatâs 100% arenât actually that exact when it comes to scaling the display to actually match the real physical size of a sheet of paper!

That is, for an 8.5x11 doc, when I hold a piece of paper in front of either Wordâs or Acrobatâs display, the displayâs size does not match my piece of paper. And so trying to eyeball things like paragraph leading is trickier than Iâd expect it to be.

Does anyone have any theories as to why this is so?
