Canvas Size versus Ruler measure.

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I was never bothered about size before, I just hacked around. But now I have a need for making a project of a specific size. So I set my canvas at 12 X 12 cm at a res of 96dpi. OK so far. When I view the canvas, though, it only measures 11.5 cm against the ruler. Am I going doo-lally? or is something else going on here? This is confusing me a bit. (Not very difficult to do at the best of times.)

Against which ruler? The paint.net one? The paint.net one should show 12 cm,


I proposed once to implement WYSIWYG if you select 100% cm or 100% inch in the status bar but I guess that's not important for most of the users and may be confusing.

You have to switch from px to cm in the status bar. The rulers will then show cm in the top/left corner.


This. The rulers use the currently selected unit (as displayed in the Status Bar) and also at the convergence of the rulers (the top left corner).
