@Pierre: Is the following setting obsolete?
  • Tools » Options... » Browser » File List » Misc. » Details view » Use inch for print size (instead of cm)

We don't know what this setting does. Could you give us a hint, please?

If i choose "View as - Thumbs & Details" it still uses pixels! This setting is in the "Browser/File list" sections, under "Details view" part of the tab. So i expect this setting have to affect on the File List in the File Browser with Details View set up. But nothing changes. ;/

In May, 2011 this suggestion arose, but there's been no progress in seven (7) years. :(

I recently struggled when copying a graphic into a Word document, but no metric units* were available in MP.
XnV and MP produced different sizes from the same file Ctrl-C'ed graphic into a Word page, XnV looking more accurate.

(Ctrl-C in MP, Rght-clk Paste in Word produced the path/filename! From XnV the graphic was pasted, as wanted.)
(Irfanview behaves the same way as legacy XnV.)

*were not metrics devised in France..?
Willing donor, if only a donor token were supplied in return, putting 'Phred's XnView' or 'Donor Version' in the title bar.
(See Wiztree for partial solution.)

In MP, you need to use Ctrl+Shift+C (copy only the bitmap data)
