Hi Matthias + all users,

I had a problem possibly related to your problem with the display size of a 
writer document working with kde/gnu-Linux.

It seems, as when any .odt file stores the size of the window in the file.
However, if you start (while libreoffice is running)

soffice --writer --headless -pt printer
any file newly opened file will be displayed in a reduced window.

I noticed, that 
is changed. However, manipulating this file does not help, because
this file will be updated every 5 minutes. Which process is responsbel for 
thet? And wher do I get further information on that nasty behaviour.

if I select 100% scaling in LibreOffice Writer the sheet appears much
bigger on the display than in reality. I use Linux 11.0 with a KDE
environment and "xdpyinfo" reports

screen #0:
dimensions:    1680x1050 pixels (331x207 millimeters)
resolution:    129x129 dots per inch

which is correct. Any other program (Gimp, PDF viewer, Inkscape) that deals
with "real sizes" behaves correctly. That means, if I create an object with
a length of 1cm and I put a ruler in front of my display, the object really
appears as 1cm.

It seems that LibreOffice always assumes a display resolution of 75dpi. Is
there any option to change this behaviour?

Best regards, Matthias Nagel
