How to print with the actual sizes (W X H)

Post by mrwul »

I have a small image to be printed: 8.5 x 5.3cm only, but on screen it is much larger.
Probably because of the high DPI.

Vainly searched how to print this using the actual size.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

The answer seems to be to use the Print... > Page layout -- Single - DPI option... :D

But that possibly raises an issue with the Print dialog design, doesn't it? Possibly better one of the following:

Single - DPI size
Single - Size from DPI
Single - Actual size

Possibly clearer dialog text for that option one of the following:

Single - DPI size
Single - Size from DPI
Single - Actual size

Agree. I wish at least "Actual Size" would be added.
For now I know I should use Single DPI, but I guess "Actual Size" would have been clearer right from the start.
Anyway, thanks again.
