Question on the rulers setting. I do a lot of Scroll saw work.

Paint.net has to get its information on how many screen pixels make a unit of length from the operating system (i.e. Windows).

Windows is not able to use accurate pixels-per-inch numbers without causing large display problems. Windows can only handle

some very approximate DPI settings, such as 96, 120, etc. If you find out what your monitor's pixel size actually is, and then set

Window's DPI value to that actual value, then you should theoretically get accurate rulers in Paint.net. But at a price.
